I had a helicopter pilot tell me once "A lot of things can happen when you fly a helicopter... Only one of them is good"..

Tragic accident... My condolences for those involved and their families...

Initially looked fishy that it was right across the road, more or less, from the gigantic wedding cake that houses MI6, but looks as though he clipped the crane on approach to Battersea Heliport in poor visibil'm alwaysity. Must say I'm always surprised that they allow helicopters to fly low right over the centre of London, but there you go.
