Bird’s eye view is impressive

Have your say

POLICE helicopter crew members were impressed by the turnout of people to see the Olympic Torch in Sheffield city centre.

Both the yellow and blue South Yorkshire and white West Yorkshire police helicopters could be seen hovering above Barker’s Pool yesterday evening, monitoring the thousands of people below.

And afterwards, the South Yorkshire crew tweeted: “We were there checking some people on rooftops. The crowd looked very impressive.”
