London: Air accident investigators say the pilot of a police helicopter did not put out any emergency calls before crashing through the roof of a crowded Glasgow pub.
Officials today removed the wreckage of the helicopter from the roof of The Clutha pub, where it came down Friday night. The civilian pilot, two police officers on board and six other people died.

David Miller, deputy chief inspector of Air Accident Investigations, did not offer a cause for the crash, saying the probe is just beginning.

He said there was no data recorder on board and that the pilot did not issue emergency transmissions.

Miller said investigators will analyze the helicopter`s systems and radar data plus radio information.
