An online condolence book has been set up to allow people to pay tribute to the four oil workers killed in a helicopter crash.

The Super Puma was carrying 16 passenger and two crew from the Borgsten Dolphin platform when it ditched into the sea off Shetland on Friday evening.

Duncan Munro, 46, George Allison, 57, Sarah Darnley, 45 and Gary McCrossan, 59, died in the crash.

The UK Oil and Gas Chaplaincy have set up a book of condolence for those who wish to pay tribute to the four workers.

Rev Gordon Craig, the chaplain, said: "Our thoughts and prayers are with the four families of those who lost their lives in Friday night’s tragic helicopter ditching.

"We remember too those who were friends and colleagues of those lost. We give thanks for those who were courageously rescued through the work of the Rescue Services and those manning the Emergency Response Rooms."

The book can be signed in the Oil Chapel in the Kirk of St Nicholas Uniting on Union Street in Aberdeen from Monday or online on the chaplaincy’s website.

The bodies of three of the oil workers returned to the mainland by ferry on Monday, with the fourth expected to follow to Aberdeen later.

All Super Pumas have been grounded as an investigation gets under way into what caused the helicopter to ditch.
