Two killed in Worcestershire plane crash

Two men have died after their plane came down in a field in Worcestershire.

It happened in a field in Overbury, between Tewkesbury and Bredon Hill, at lunchtime on Monday 8th January.

Two people who were on board the aircraft, the pilot and a passenger, were sadly both pronounced deceased at the scene. Officers are working to identify and inform their next of kin and formal identification is yet to take place. There were no other reported injuries.

A scene guard and a cordon are in place at the scene of the incident and are likely to remain there for a while.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) have been informed and a team of investigators have been deployed. 

Superintendent Kevin Purcell from West Mercia Police said: "Emergency services remain at the scene of the incident, in which two people have sadly died. 

"We have been working closely with our colleagues from the other emergency services at the scene to make the area safe and to ensure the resulting investigation can now proceed, which will be led by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch. We will continue to support them throughout their investigation.

"Our thoughts remain with the families of the two people who have lost their lives."
