Light aircraft crash in Worcestershire – Update

Monday 8th January 2018 – 4.45pm – Murray MacGregor.

Two people have died after a light aircraft crash.

The single engine aircraft came down at around 12.45pm today in a field near Overbury, Tewkesbury.

Due to the foggy conditions at the time, the Midlands Air Ambulance from Strensham, with a doctor and critical care paramedic on board, had landed a couple of miles from the crash scene and were picked up by a paramedic officer in a car and were taken to the scene.

Two ambulances and a second paramedic officer also attended.

Sadly, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save either person and they were both confirmed dead at the scene.
