"The military uses the helideck to train and the pilot will land for 45 seconds before taking off again.

"It's one thing landing in a desert in Iraq, it's another flying over a busy city.

"We do this on a regular basis because we have the only raised helideck outside London at Leeds General Infirmiary."

The helicopter exercise comes just a week after the last incident. Last week, two Apache military helicopters were spotted landing and taking off at the hospital - which turned out to be a training exercise. http://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/news/two-apache-helicopters-spotted-flying-over-leeds-city-centre-1-8257434
