North Sea copters flying despite ‘Beast from the East’


North Sea helicopters are flying today despite freezing temperatures and snowfall hitting the north-east of Scotland. Operators are flying from Aberdeen at the moment, though many of the services are subject to delays. Flights to and from Sumburgh have resumed — the airport on Shetland had been closed until 9am due to snow.
