Luton crash 1967?

One for the historical experts? this is reposted on behalf of a fellow member of a model engineering forum
I have just had a general look at the posts as I'm on the night shift and have nothing else better to do. As aircraft accidents appear on recent posts, I tried to find a accident on the internet that happened around 1967 at Christmas time, but cant find any record of it.
The crash site was Vauxhall motors Luton, a small jet took of from Luton airport, and Vauxhalls is at the end of the runway. I remember my father getting a phone call to come in as he was on maintenance, and was needed for cutting the structure of the building away from the aircraft. I remember him telling me that the pilot was badly burnt and looked like a lump of cork.
As I've said, reading this discussion I have tried to get some information on the internet about this accident, but nothing about it at all.
Does anyone here have anything relevant, please?

GAPDK - Thank you very much - looks to be spot on! Will pass that on to the enquirer.
