Quite possible, there was a NOTAM for helicopter firefighting exercises this week (27th-30th) in Newcastle area.

However a Eurocopter Dauphin AS.365 N2 from Executive Helicopter Maintenance Ltd & PSNI EC145 are in the area at the minute around Belfast  direction.

Definitely not the police. Fairly confident it was a 139 and appeared to be all green but the light angle was weird

I believe it may well have been EI-PRO which was in the area you mention.It is a very shiny grey colour with a red cheat line-see pic
