Three killed in helicopter accident

A helicopter carrying five people from Magny-Cours to a hotel near Charite-sur-Loire, to the north of Nevers, crashed late last night, killing three of those onboard. We hear that the helicopter was carrying Bridgestone personnel but at the moment there are no details of who was involved. Two people survived the crash but were seriously injured. Further details are expected to emerge this morning.
