Police refused to be drawn on reports today that a helicopter mysteriously landed at the scene of weapons expert Dr David Kelly’s death shortly after his body was discovered. Details released under the Freedom of Information Act reportedly disclose that the aircraft stayed on the ground for five minutes before leaving.
According to its flight log, the helicopter, said to have been hired by Thames Valley Police, landed at Harrowdown Hill in Oxfordshire at 10.55am on July 18 2003 – 90 minutes after Dr Kelly’s body was found by search teams.
The purpose of the flight and who was on board have not been established because details of the flight log have been heavily redacted, according to the Daily Mail newspaper.

David Kelly became a member of the Bahá’í Faith around 1999. He was introduced to this faith by Mai Pederson, a US military linguist and intelligence operative.
