Light aircraft crashes in field

A light aircraft with two people on board has crashed in a field, police said.

Leicestershire Police were called by the ambulance service shortly before 8pm on Wednesday night to a report of a light aircraft that had come down in a field near Wymeswold.

It is believed the aircraft contained a pilot and one passenger.

On Wednesday night, officers were contacting immediate family about the incident, a spokesman for Leicestershire Police said.

The area was being made secure for the Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB), who will be investigating the cause of the incident, he added.

A spokeswoman for East Midlands Ambulance Service said: "At this stage I can confirm we received a call about the incident at 19:48 reporting a 'plane crash'.

"Several ambulance resources were sent to the scene."

The condition of the pair is not known.
