Eighteen men escape to safety after their helicopter ditched in the North Sea.

Investigations are underway into why a helicopter carrying 18 people had to make an emergency landing in the North Sea last night.

The Super Puma helicopter went down 125 miles east of Aberdeen, just 500 metres short of the BP oil platform where it was due to land. All the passengers were rescued and are safe and well.
