    Police Helicopter Crash glasgow


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     When Richard Williams, 34 of Renfrew, Scotland, heard that a police helicopter crashed into the roof of a pub in Glasgow, he drove to the scene on Friday night. He took these photos at about 11:15 p.m. local time -- about 45 minutes after the crash took place. Williams says he was able to get approximately 200 feet from the crash site, but couldn't get closer because several roads were closed and law enforcement was standing guard. "Emergency services were using aerial platforms to try and access the wreckage with about 50 police officers, 40 fire brigade officers and several ambulance crews," he says. "There were also specialist search teams on the roof of the building."
