going into the sea at Flamborough at 1.44 PM. Our correspondent Paul
Murphy is at Flamborough. What happens now, Paul?
Officers will be looking at the possible causes of this crash
tomorrow. Before that, the helicopter has to be hoisted to a
safer area before examination. They will be speaking to a number of
people that watch this tragddy unfold. The call came just `fter
half past one and it became clear that a helicopter flying just a few
hundred yards off this causdd was in serious difficulty. Eyewitndsses
reported hearing a change in its engine torn. Others said it was much
more automatic. We had a cr`ck and be looked up and saw the helicopter
descending almost like an ahrcraft descending down. At the nearby
Flamborough golf club the crash was witnessed by several players, many
of whom ran to the edge of the cliff to see if they could help. Xou hear
the change of an engine and wonder if it is turning round are coming
back but then I could see it was banking Britain slipping and then
went down below the cleft. From what we understand it would've bden under
water for a period of time that has now effectively lying on thd beach.
The Coast Guard used winch `nd ropes to get down. The helicopter is now
approximately 200 yards frol the cleft to the Mac `` clef. `cliff.
The men have not been named but it is very probable they have been
identified by the various rdcords of the flight.
who reports a crime should dxpect a police officer to turn up at their

Long gone are the days when a family doctor would turn up at our homes to
treat the mildest of ailments. So should we expect the polhce to
guarantee a home response for every call they receive?
That's the question being posed by Humberside's Chief Constabld Justine
Scunthorpe's Westcliff Estate feel about not being guaranteed ` home
I'd rather someone came out to reassure me. There's no good
speaking over the phone. I would rather have an actual policd officer
there is a sign of reassurance. The report on the future of
Humberside Police published in full today, says we're ringing the police
for the wrong reasons, like parking According to the report, out of
600,000 calls to the switchboard There are 160,000 staff turn outs.
But only 86,000 are necessary. You want to deal with crime at the
end of a telephone. Whilst the public's being asked to
change its expectations, thd force says it needs to reorganise to go
where the demand and not have officers stationed by geogr`phy
Police and Crime Commissiondr, Matthew Grove, has defended
redesigning the force. Tonight I spoke to Humberside's
Police Commissioner, I asked him if police have previously made home
visits that weren't actuallx needed. Community to make sure that we
respond in a way that meets the needs of the victims. But you want
to have the number of visits, don't you? Give me a crime or you do not
want to call. We do not want to have the visits. We want to make sure
that we send officers only when the public need them. Our farmer police
superintendent of your own force says that the public is being conned
and this should not be deprhved of us visit by police. The public were
being conned when somebody was pretending every crime was being
investigated under the reign of that former police superintendent. He sat
in a chair and told me. Then he was accepting something that was not
true because I have sat in that chair and checked and that was not
the case. But the main demand for policing in the East Riding is in
Bedlington but most of the police officers whether Beverley. Why does
that make sense for anybody in the East Riding?

Who will have a lot of cloud over the next few days. There will be
some rest and flogging placds, particularly over the hills. It will
be very mild, though, from mid`September. Extensible code
tomorrow and sky spouting a little bit better and will keep a lot of
cloud with the rest of the shower. Highs around 18 degrees.
Thanks for watching. We're back tomorrow night at the same time
you now with Darren Bett and the national weather.
This cloud looks worse than it is. Glitching the extreme south-west
overnight. Ahead of it we've got an easterly air flow. That low cloud
that never cleared the North Sea coasts is pushing through the gaps,
running on to high ground. We'll have clearer skies further west but
the low cloud is more extensive leading to mist and fog over hills
and coasts in the east, where
