Shoreham Airshow crash death toll may rise above seven as pilot fights for life


The bodies of more victims may be found as investigators and emergency services continue to search the scene of the Shoreham Airshow plane crash, police said.

Seven people died when an historic Hawker Hunter jet plummeted on to the A27 at Shoreham in West Sussex after it failed to pull out of a loop manoeuvre.

The pilot was flown to the Royal Sussex Hospital where he is in a critical condition and fighting for his life, Superintendent Jane Derrick, from Sussex Police, said.
