4 dead in US helicopter crash over UK coast

NORFOLK:Four US Air Force personnel (USAF)have been killed after a US Pave Hawk military helicopter crashed in a nature reserve in north Norfolk. The USAF confirms.

There are fears the accident may have been caused by a bird strike at the village of Cley-next-to-the sea after it came down in an area popular with migrating birds.

A 400 metre cordon has been placed around the scene by emergency services amid reports the search and rescue helicopter may have been carrying limo ammunition.

The crash happened in the peaceful former port which lies not far from the RAF Lakenheath air base on the norfolk3Norfolk, Suffolk border.

The predominantly flat area is widely used by the military for training sorties with one resident claiming to have seen military helicopters flying just 200ft above the ground.

Local residents said there were many fire engines at the scene and police cars were in attendance at Cley and the village of Salthouse further down the coast.
