Please pray for those involved in this tragedy which is still unfolding in the North Sea.

Breaking News4:56pm UK, Wednesday April 01, 2009

Ten people have been killed and another six are missing after a helicopter ditched in the sea off the north east Scottish coast, Sky sources say.

The Bond Super Puma aircraft, with 14 passengers and two crew, was returning from an oil platform, just before 2pm, when it went down 35 miles from Aberdeenshire.

Ten bodies have been found and the search continues for six other people, sources say.

The incident comes about six weeks after another Bond Super Puma with 18 people on board ditched in the North Sea. Everyone survived that accident.

The alarm was raised today when Aberdeen Coastguard received a mayday call at about 1.57pm, and a major rescue operation was launched.

Two RAF helicopters and a Nimrod were also involved in the search for survivors.

Emergency services were placed on standby and NHS Grampian said it had put its major incident plan into action.

Aircraft went down off Scottish coast

Helicopter operator Bond confirmed it was one of its aircraft which was involved in the incident.

BP said the aircraft was operating on behalf of the oil giant and it was returning to shore from the Miller oil field.

The Coastguard has confirmed the helicopter was a Super Puma AS 33L Mk II which was an earlier model of the one which ditched on February 18.

In the previous incident, the aircraft had gone down as it approached a production platform owned by BP.
