91-year-old microlight pilot rescued from tree
A 91-year-old pilot had to be rescued after crashing a microlight into an oak tree.
The plane became stuck in the tree about 15ft above the ground in a field near Lingfield Road, Edenbridge, Kent, just after 3pm on Saturday.
Fire crews used lines, ladders and a winch to secure the microlight before attempting to extract the elderly pilot from the aircraft.
The pilot was eventually released and assessed by paramedics by 5.20pm, a spokesman for Kent Fire and Rescue Service said.
