MPs from the House of Commons transport select committee are visiting Aberdeen to take evidence on helicopter safety.

The inquiry was set up after last year’s Super Puma crash off Shetland which killed four people.

Since 2009, five serious incidents involving Super Puma helicopters offshore have seen 20 people lose their lives.

The transport committee is holding an open evidence session at Aberdeen University.

MPs will take evidence from helicopter operators and manufacturers – including Eurocopter who make the Super Puma.

It will also hear from trade unions and oil and gas companies.

They may also look into the police helicopter crash in Glasgow in November which killed 10 people.

Elsewhere in Aberdeen, accident investigators are due to give evidence at the on-going fatal accident inquiry into the 2009 Super Puma crash which killed all 16 people on board.
