    The helicopter hit a crane. There looks to be a low cloud base. The crane was tied to the side if a very large tower block that is being built and the crane protruded onto the top of the building.

    The lucky person who was taken from a burning car, needs to do the lottery.

    Helicopter bits on fire, lands on your car, and you walk away, well done firemen...

    There was dense fog around when I left for work at quarter to eight, to me who knows nothing about helicopters I would have said it was madness trying to fly a helicopter in those conditions.

    Could have been much, much worse. The crash site was very close to a busy rail line:
