A LONE PILOT was injured earlier this morning when a light aeroplane crashed in a field at Ealing Grove, Christ Church.

The pilot, whose name has not been released, was treated on board an ambulance at the scene and later taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital. 

Reports indicate the plane had engine failure and the pilot looked for an area where he could land the aircraft. The incident occurred around 9:45 a.m.

Scores of people have gathered near the scene, but cannot get too close as fuel continues to leak from the aircraft. (HG)
