City Airport closed after helicopter emergency drama

Flights to and from London City Airport were cancelled after a helicopter made an emergency landing.

The runway at the Royal Docks airport had to be closed after a Bell Jet Ranger helicopter declared a full emergency at around 3.15pm last Thursday (3/3).

On board was one crew member and one passenger, who both safely disembarked.

Departures and arrivals resumed at around 4.30pm, but some services had to be diverted.
