WHAT are thought to be RAF Puma helicopters have been spotted in Worthing today.

Two or three of what are suspected to be the battlefield helicopters have been seen landing and taking off from Homefield Park in Worthing.

Sussex Police confirmed the helicopters were taking part in a training exercise by the RAF, which was completed at 4pm.

One of the residents to spot the craft was John Hudson, who took a photograph of a low-flying helicopter over Park Avenue.

Hannah Lake lives close to Homefield Park and said she spotted two circulating in the sky.

She said: “My dog was going mad in the garden so I went out. I saw two of them circulate the house before they went down. It’s a bit strange.”
