A Lancashire MP has spoken of his shock after a helicopter crashed near his London flat - killing two people and injuring nine others.
Police said the helicopter collided with a crane at St George Wharf Tower in central London in misty conditions at around 8am this morning.
Sixty firefighters are at the scene, near Wandsworth Road in South Lambeth.
Morecambe and Lunesdale MP David Morris said on Twitter: “I am shocked, a helicopter crashed about 100 yards away from my flat. Thoughts are with those directly involved.”
Doctors said one of the dead was in the helicopter and the other on the ground.
Burning wreckage lay in the road but the fire is now under control.
A man rescued from a burning car by firefighters is one of two people taken to St Thomas’ Hospital by London Ambulance Service crews.
