A major emergency services rescue is underway at Flamborough after reports that a helicopter crashed into the cliffs.

Although details are still being confirmed, eyewitnesses have told the Free Press they believed a police helicopter got into difficulties at around 1.30pm.

Chris Feast, from Flamborough Head Golf Club, said a number of golfers had spotted a helicopter trying to land near the 17th green and then reported hearing a ‘loud bang and crash’.

Lifeboats from Bridlington and Flamborough launched shortly afterwards and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance has arrived at the scene.
