7:29am 7th February 2014

A petition to save Portland's coastguard helicopter has been handed in to parliament.

The paper has gained over 100 thousand signatures, calling on the Department of Transport to re-think their decision to close the base in 2017.

Under modernisation plans, new high speed emergency rescue helicopters will come from Fareham instead.

Campaigners say the move will put "people's lives at risk."
