The helicopter was attending a road traffic accident (RTA) in which a pedestrian had suffered potentially life-threatening injuries. While landing on a garage forecourt, close to the RTA, a metal sign became detached from the wall of the garage and was blown into the main rotor disc. The commander was able to make a controlled landing on the forecourt and no-one within or outside the helicopter was injured by the flying metal debris from the sign.
