London chopper crash kills two people

LONDONERS have told how they feared a terror attack as a helicopter spun from the sky and crashed near the MI6 building in an accident that has killed two people.

At least 13 were injured when the helicopter hit a crane on the top of an unfinished luxury apartment block in central London during morning rush hour and plunged to the ground in a ball of flames.

Witnesses said part of the crane fell on a street below sending construction workers fleeing for their lives, while the helicopter, spewing a thick plume of black smoke, cast burning wreckage over the ground.

The top of the 51-storey building, The Tower at One St George Wharf, was shrouded in mist at the time.

Emergency services were called to Wandsworth Road South Lambeth, near the River Thames, about 8am local time and were greeted with a scene of carnage.
