Dorset MP Submits Report To Save Coastguard Helicopter

Whiskey Bravo Coastguard helicopter Portland

9:08am 13th September 2012

A report defending the Portland Coastguard Chopper has been sent to the Commons Transport Select Committee.

The 12 page document was put together by South Dorset MP Richard Drax who's been FIGHTING to save the helicopter from being scrapped.

The report will be used by the Select Committee as evidence on how changes to the service will impact on local communities.

It's the latest move in the on-going debate.

Mr Drax hopes the new head of state will be more open-minded than former Transport Secretary Justine Greening.

He's also working alongside local people to co-ordinate their campaign and raise more awareness.
