After looking at a few pics and the original footage close up in comparison I deffo agree it was a Merlin helicopter. My mate from next door and his
friend who knocked on had been observing it for about 20 minutes before and although I never captured or saw 2 at the same time but am sure there were
2, I myself saw and heard it for around 30 minutes so I estimated at about 45 minutes allowing for 5 minutes on the 2nd hand account and thats only
from when he spotted it, so it could have been a lot longer than 45 minutes, which is a long time for a military helicopter to be circling a
residential housing estate at low altitude, as you can tell from the footage I'm surrounded by other houses so getting a clear shot wasn't easy, and
I had to wait a good few minutes to charge the battery before I could even start filming.
