Drax Vows To Fight On To Save Portland Coastguard Helicopter


9:12am 15th May 2012

South Dorset MP Richard Drax has told Wessex FM he's continuing with his fight to save Portland Coastguard Helicopter.

As it stands a decision to restructure the service by the Government means the chopper will have to go in 2017.

Mr Drax now has a copy of the report used by the Secretary of State, Justine Greening.

He says his team are analysing it for flaws and will present their evidence to the House of Commons to get the decision overturned.
