LONDON – Two people died Saturday when a civilian helicopter crashed near a golf course in northern England, the local fire and rescue service said.
The victims of the crash, at about 1630 GMT, both of whom were on the helicopter, were not immediately identified. No one else was believed to be aboard, said Carl Bosman of North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.
Bosman said the helicopter crashed in woodland near the Rudding Park Hotel outside Harrogate, 200 miles northwest of London.
Rudding Park is a luxury complex whose guests have included former U.S. President Bill Clinton and former Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
