MEMORIAL SERVICE HELI CRASH.

HUNDREDS of mourners were attending a memorial service today for 16 men - including a Liverpool dad - who died when their helicopter crashed in the North Sea.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond were among those at the service in Aberdeen this afternoon.

They were being joined in the Kirk of St Nicholas Uniting by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Several streets were closed ahead of the service, and TV screens were being put up outside the church for those unable to get in.

The 14 passengers and two crew - including James Edwards, 33, of Fazakerley - were returning from BP's Miller platform when the Super Puma went down two weeks ago..
