I know there have been a few 'chopper over SE1 threads' so apologies for going over old ground, however specifically does anyone know anything about the helicopter that was overhead for a good half an hour last night with searchlight on, from about midnight?

It seemed to start over Borough way and came around us following what I assume was the river, light on throughout. So far, so joy-rider maybe, but having got as far as Westminster it flew back over us and seemed to repeat the whole exercise. At which point I gave up and shut the window, heat or no heat...

Any thoughts?

No idea, but sounds like searching the river for a person/body - thermal imaging on board.

Cheers - good thinking. Certainly sounds feasible.

you're not wrong! it was hovering about by the london eye for quite some time and moved along the river. seemed to stop over waterloo bridge and flew away after that. very annoying sound. not your usual helicopter...
