    Unfortunately he was diverted, so he would not have had full knowledge of the route. It's possible he didn't know about the crane on his new flight path and gone straight into it.

    The helicopter that crashed looks like it was from Rotor Motion...

    Preliminary report into the accident by The Air Accidents Investigation Branch [11 page PDF]

    Link: Special Bulletin S1/2013 - Agusta A109E, G-CRST

    Summary:

    The helicopter was flying to the east of Battersea Heliport when it struck the jib of a crane, attached to a building development at St George Wharf, at a height of approximately 700 ft in conditions of reduced meteorological visibility. The pilot, who was the sole occupant of the helicopter, and a pedestrian were fatally injured when the damaged helicopter impacted a building and adjacent roadway. This Special Bulletin presents facts determined up to the time of issue and offers no analysis.
