A helicopter has crash landed at the City of Derry Airport.

The incident happened shortly before 5pm yesterday during a training session.

A PSNI spokeswoman said no one was injured but the pilot was treated for shock.

She added there were no further details available.

Last night the airport manager Darren Tierney said: “A Robinson 22 helicopter was doing a controlled descent. It was only hovering about 20ft when it hit the Tarmac. But the pilot walked away without any injuries.”
