Helicopter crash victims remembered

The 16 victims of the North Sea helicopter crash are remembered at a special church service in Aberdeen.

Prince Charles, Prime Minister Gordon Brown and First Minister Alex Salmond joined about 1,000 people, including friends and relatives for the service lead by Rev Andrew Jolly, chaplain to the UK oil and gas industry.

Candles were lit for the men who lost their lives that day, including David Stephenson, who died in a separate incident on board the oil rig support vessel Wellservicer.
