Coastguard examining debris discovered off Cruit Island which could be part of Rescue 116

 

The coastguard is examining a piece of debris that was recovered by fishermen off Cruit Island this morning, amid speculation that it may be a fragment of Rescue 116, the coastguard helicopter which crashed off County Mayo.

An islander told Highland Radio News the piece of debris does have a number stamped on it, and would need up to four people to lift it.
