Sumburgh Inquiry Enters Second Week of Evidence
The Fatal Accident Inquiry concerning the deaths of four off-shore workers who died when the helicopter they were travelling in crashed into the North Sea off Sumburgh in 2013 is now hearing its second week of evidence.
The Inquiry, believed to be the first of its size and scale to be conducted entirely by electronic means – using the WebEx system – is presently hearing evidence from an AAIB Investigator. Of the nine interested parties appearing, seven are represented by members of Compass Chambers: Peter Gray QC for Total Exploration UK Ltd; Gavin Anderson for the Co-pilot, Mr Bell; Susan Duff for Darchem Engineering Ltd; Barry Smith for the Civil Aviation Authority; Emma Toner for Airbus Helicopters SAS; Ranald Macpherson for the Pilot, Mr Miglans; and David Adams for the family of one of the deceased passengers, Ms Darnley.
