Three British tourists killed in a helicopter crash in the Grand Canyon have been named by US police.

Becky Dobson, 27, Jason Hill, 32, and Stuart Hill, 30, died in Saturday’s crash, the Hualapai Police said.

Three other Britons and the pilot were injured when the helicopter, on a tour of the canyon, came down at about 17:20 local time( 00:20 GMT) in Arizona.

It is not clear what caused the crash and witnesses say rescue efforts have been hampered by high winds.
