Amateur Video Captures High Drama

A video shot by a passer-by shows a dramatic helicopter rescue at the top of York Minster.

The footage of a helicopter hovering above the cathedral was sent to the York Press by one of its readers.

Alison Smith caught the moment when the helicopter winched up a tourist who had collapsed at the top of the central tower.

Other members of the public also captured images of the sky rescue and sent them to the Press.

And one photo was judged to be so good that it was later used beside the front-page article in the print edition.

Editor Kevin Booth told holdthefrontpage.co.uk that the submissions illustrate the good relationship the Press enjoys with its readers.

“We like to think we are close to our readers. This confirmed it many times over. Their first thought was for their local paper.”
