The low flying helicopter over us for several hours was also very annoying. Am disappointed at the lack of moaning about the road closures or the helicopter. Did no one feel my pain?

. Totally agree re helicopters in general and yesterday was extremely stressful.. I did speak to police and the chopper disappeared like magic...it was a pain indeed trying to ruin our sunny Sunday rest day supposedly...I heard the radio announce the event so decided to spend part of the pleasant day in the West End which was tranquil n quiet compared to this vibrant Southbank.area yesterday

Thanks Zoe - I was determined not to be the first! We definitely felt the pain. The helicopter hovered over the south side of Blackfriars Station, directly in front of our flat in Burrell Street, for almost six hours. It moved away every so often (obviously just to annoy the hell out of someone else) and each time we thought it had gone but, no, back it came. Very painful. It didn't appear to be filming and it wasn't the police, so no idea what the purpose was. Who, exactly, can we / should we complain to when this happens? I didn't think it would be a police matter, but what do I know?!

I wrote to Simon Hughes about this a few years back,. I got a nice reply from him and was copied into correspondence between him and the CAA.
There doesn't seem to be many restrictions for helicopter use, time of day/night/morning is irrelevant.

That was my understanding as well, but how can it be necessary / justified to hover over one area for hours at a time, especially as Sunday is the only time we can expect anything approaching a bit of peace and quiet.
