Helicopter Petition Fails To Get Enough Signatures

Whiskey Bravo Coastguard helicopter Portland

3:23pm 30th July 2013

A petition set-up to save Portland's Coastguard Helicopter is gonna fall well short of its target of 100,000 signatures.

So far nearly 17,000 have put pen to paper, but it closes later today and is unlikely to be debated in Parliament.

South Dorset MP Richard Drax set up the petition.

The base is set to close in 2017.

New coastguard helicopters will launch from Lee on Solent instead.
