Chopper in fatal crash had been diverted because of bad weather

TWO people died and several were injured today when a helicopter crashed in central London after the pilot attempted to divert due to bad weather.

The helicopter spun out of control and crash-landed after clipping a crane on top of one of Europe's tallest residential towers.



It fell from the sky before exploding into flames, plunging on to Wandsworth Road near Vauxhall station.
