Chief Minister Natasha Fyles says the Territory is working closely with US authorities after three marines were killed in an Osprey crash during a training exercise on the Tiwi Islands.

She told Katie Woolf multiple agencies worked together to respond to the crash, with a field hospital stood up and a Code Brown declared at Royal Darwin Hospital.

On a separate topic, Ms Fyles said debate on a crime petition yielding 26,000 signatures, started after Declan Laverty’s death, will go for longer than 16 minutes in parliament this Tuesday.
