News just breaking on ITN News of an aircraft accident near Uttoxeter, Staffs.
First reports are that there were five people onboard and it looks as though there have been fatalities.

No confirmation of wether it was a commercial, military or private aircraft at this stage.

Its about 1/2 mile from the village of Gratwich. Light piston twin, 5 POB, some injuries with fire crews cutting people free. Air ambulance in attendence. No obvious take off or land facility nearby.

Fingers crossed.

What with the Biggin accidents and the several other fatal incidents so far this has been one of the worst years in my memory.

Very sad.

It was a Partenavia reg:- N33PV trying to divert to Tatenhill instead of it's destination which was given as Haydock park.
Although on a (N) reg it was owned by a a company from Cornwall.
All 5 on board survived, some with serious injuries, another bad weekend in aviation.
