A 10th person has died following the crash of a police helicopter into a Glasgow pub, police said today, as a British transport company said it was grounding all its helicopters of the type involved in the crash after detecting a technical problem on a recent flight.

Bond Air Services, operator of the Eurocopter EC135 Type 2 chopper that crashed November 29, said another EC135 in its fleet experienced "an indication defect" yesterday that requires further investigation.

It offered no further explanation, but said it had suspended operation of all 22 of the copters.

British investigators had said there was no initial evidence of engine failure in the police helicopter that crashed into The Clutha pub.

The helicopter's crew - a civilian pilot and two police officers - were among the dead and Scotland police said today a 10th person, who had been receiving treatment since the accident, had died at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

More than 30 people were injured in the accident.
