Closure of Portland Helicopter base


Dear All

I don’t normally circulate these sort of things but this is one I think it’s worth sharing with the club and the wider diving community.

“The Secretary of State for Transport has announced that the Portland Coastguard Helicopter base will close, despite protests from local people, MPs and Hospital Consultants.
Many people with an in depth knowledge of what this helicopter does at a local level feel that lives will be lost as a result of losing this Search & Rescue facility.
We urge the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for Transport to reverse this decision before loss of life is encountered.”
