12-02-2018

Three British tourists have been killed in a helicopter crash in the Grand Canyon on Saturday. 

They have been named by US police as Becky Dobson, 27, Jason Hill, 32, and Stuart Hill, 30. 

Three other Britons and the pilot were injured when the helicopter, on a tour of the canyon, came down at about 17:20 local time (00:20 GMT) in Arizona. 

It is not clear what caused the crash and eyewitnesses say rescue efforts have been hampered by high winds.
