Happened on Sunday near Spanhoe, from the BBC article, pilot suffered leg injuries which are not believed to be life-threatening

Almost certainly Leicester-based G-AWIR:

It is. Remember seeing it in the hangar at Leicester in the early 80s covered in dust. Nice to see it has been active, what a shame it's oranges. Hope the pilot is mended soonest.

Both planes had been to Breighton fly-in on Sunday. Sad day for both.

AAIB report on the BBC:

How strange that it has some things in common with this crash in August 1960 involving my father's Valiant (see post 5 for a summary):
