Apparently the light on the crane was working fine, but apparently the top of the crane was obscured by fog.
Witness reports say the heli was seen banking very low over the Vauxhall Bridge which was very unusual.
Maybe the pilot was trying to avoid the fog and took a risk? Maybe he fell ill at the controls and lost it?
I've attended two heli crashes in the past, one was a lynx in a confined area and it's not a nice scene. Thumbs up again for the emergency services
dealing with it, a good response from all involved by the sounds of it.
