Light aircraft search update

East Riding

11 Oct 2018

Following an extensive search of the countryside close to Beverley Airfield near Leven a light aircraft has now been found.

The aircraft had crashed and sadly both the pilot and a passenger who were the occupants of the aircraft suffered fatal injuries in the collision.  The families have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers.

We want to thank all emergency services, volunteers and local residents involved in the search, their assistance is very much appreciated.

A full investigation into the circumstances of the collision will be carried out.
