The BBC has named the two British men who were killed in a helicopter on Mallorca on Saturday morning as Mark Blaver-Mann and Alistair Evans, both aged 53, and both businessmen from Dorset.

Mr Blaver-Mann is reported to have bought the Hughes 500 helicopter last year and is thought to have been piloting the aircraft when it crashed in a wooded area of Coll de Sa Gramola, near Andratx.

Diario de Mallorca indicates that witnesses who saw what happened said the helicopter was flying very low shortly before it came down, and appears to have been seeking an appropriate spot to make an emergency landing before it began to spin rapidly, then crashed and burst into flames.

Civil Aviation technicians sent from Madrid began work at the site on Sunday to determine the cause of the accident, which it’s thought could have been a mechanical fault. A separate police investigation is being undertaken by the Civil Guard.
