On Friday, nine people died when a helicopter crashed through the roof of the Clutha bar in Glasgow. Today, it was revealed that Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) has begun their enquiry to the accident. Investigators have taken the Eurocopter at the AAIB based on Tuesday. First Minister Alex Salmond said that they will provide the Scottish Parliament a preliminary report within the next few days.
John Logue, procurator fiscal for the East of Scotland, said: "The priority is with the AAIB to carry out their detailed technical investigation in order to establish what happened to the aircraft on Friday night.
"The responsibility of the AAIB is not to apportion blame, but to establish from a technical point of view what has happened and what recommendations can be made to ensure air travel is as safe as possible.
"Our responsibility is to investigate all sudden and unexplained deaths, in particular in relation to incidents like this, with a view to determining at some point in the future whether or not there should be a criminal prosecution or a Fatal Accident Inquiry (FAI)."
