One nearby resident spoke of seeing an aircraft flying overhead before it disappeared.

Jan Cooke told the BBC: "We were out in the garden and saw a light aircraft come over, which is normal round here.

"It was sort of a glider-type aircraft. The engine was very quiet and slow, and then the next thing we knew the engine stopped.

"I don't know what happened next, because it sort of disappeared."

Inspectors from the Air Accident Investigation Branch were sent to the scene and will investigate the cause of the crash.
