Two coastguard pilots who were suspended after stopping off at a butchers in Orkney during a training exercise have been reinstated.
Skipper Paul Bentley and crewmate Steve Gladstone were suspended when YouTube footage emerged showing the red and white aircraft touching down in Orkney to pick up a consignment of beef.
The Shetland Coastguard crew were caught on camera landing in a field behind the shop in Tankerness, Orkney, close to the local airport but some 85 miles from the coastguard base.
CHC Helicopters has confirmed the pair had now returned to their original posts.
The firm insisted at the time that the training exercise the pair had been on had been completed and any costs incurred were met by them and not the taxpayer.
