A helicopter with seven people on board was forced to make an emergency landing in Shetland today.
A full scale emergency was declared at Sumburgh Airport, and the emergency services were called to the busy airport.
However, they were stood down once the CHC-operated helicopter landed safely.
It is understood the Super Puma aircraft landed as a precaution after emergency services were alerted to a possible fire on board when a warning light came on.
The helicopter landed at about 3pm this afternoon.
A CHC spokesman said last night: “An aircraft travelling offshore returned to base at Sumburgh as a precaution after the crew received an indication warning.
“The passengers and crew landed safely just before 3pm.”
She confirmed a fire had not broken out onboard.
A spokesman for Highlands and Islands Airports said: “The aircraft was a Super Puma helicopter. There was an emergency declared and it landed safely.”
A police spokeswoman said: “We were made aware of a helicopter coming in to land at Sumburgh Airport.
“We were made aware that there was a fire on board. It has landed now and we have been advised that it has landed safely.
“There were seven people on board the helicopter.”
A fire service spokeswoman said today that fire appliances from Lerwick, Sumburgh and Scalloway, set off for the airport.
They returned to their stations when it emerged the aircraft had touched down safely.
