Two die in light aircraft crash near village of Churton
Two men were killed in a light aircraft crash on England's border with Wales, police confirmed this morning.
The plane came down near the village of Churton, south of Chester, last night.
A Cheshire Police spokeswoman said today: "Sadly the two men onboard the aircraft, one from North Wales and a second man from Surrey, sustained fatal injuries.
"Their next of kin have been informed but formal identification has not yet taken place."
The Air Accident Investigation Branch has been informed.
Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service said last night it was called to Chapel Lane, Aldford, at 8.45pm after reports that a light aircraft crashed in a field.
"Two fire engines from Chester went to the scene and on arrival crews found a two-seater plane had crashed into a field," a spokesman said.
"Police and paramedics were also on the scene and firefighters assisted them in gaining access to the aircraft which contained two men."
