The London Fire Brigade said it had received multiple calls of a helicopter hitting a crane in Vauxhall.
Ex-BBC producer Paul Ferguson said the helicopter "plummeted straight into the ground". People have reported seeing a pall of smoke in the area.
Police said they first received calls at 08:00 GMT and the London Ambulance Service said it was also at the scene.
Not really sure what took place at this time, but it makes me wonder. I am not from there so I am not familiar with the laws sorry if the questions
Do they require lights/flags to be visable on cranes and such to let air traffic see them easier?
Are helicopters allowed to fly that close to buildings (assuming this one did not have a landing pad on it)?
Did anyone in the area happen to see this or hear it as it took place? If so can you give some detail that we are not reading about?
I am not reading of any deaths, I assume there is at least one though.
