Military helicopter crew wrecked conservatory

Military helicopter crew 'wrecked conservatory by flying down to ogle sunbathing au pair'

A military helicopter destroyed the conservatory of a £1.75 million mansion when its pilot swooped too low to look at a sunbathing au pair, a court heard yesterday.

The four servicemen flying the Merlin helicopter were said to have dropped to 500ft or lower for the "frolic" in July.

The house's owners claim the downdraught from the aircraft seriously damaged the 23ft-high glass conservatory, leaving it needing to be replaced.

Barry and Anna George, who own The Old Stables in Eastbourne, East Sussex, are claiming £250,000 in damages plus legal costs

Well done lads, but where is the camera evidence of the sunbather? 8)
