Death toll from Shoreham air crash could rise to 20

Shoreham Plane Crash Leaves Many Dead

The final death toll from the Shoreham air crash could rise to 20, police have said.

Eleven people are so far feared to have died when a Hawker Hunter jet plummeted on to the A27 after it failed to pull out of a loop manoeuvre during an aerial display, exploding in a huge fireball as it ploughed through cars on the busy road.

Recovery work

But with recovery of the wreckage of the aircraft expected to take place later today, Sussex Police assistant chief constable Steve Barry said the number of dead could rise.

He said: "To give people a sense of scale and also the number of people we are trying to work with in terms of the movements of their loved ones, then I would be really surprised if it would be more than 20."
