New E-Petition To Keep Chopper

Whiskey Bravo Coastguard helicopter Portland

(Updated 6:45am 28th August 2012)

Well over 9,200 people have now signed a new e-petition to save Portland Coastguard Helicopter.

It was only set up on the 31st of July by South Dorset MP Richard Drax.

A previous petition created by Dr Ian Mew has now expired.

Mr Drax is hoping to get 100,000 signatures by the time it expires in July next year to trigger a debate on saving the helicopter in the House of Commons.

You can sign the e-petition now on the Home Page of our website.
