Two men were seriously injured when a small plane crashed today.

One man suffered serious fractures and the second was in a more serious condition, a Hampshire Police spokeswoman said.

She said police were still trying to identify the two men who are thought to be aged between 60 and 70.

The plane came down near the town of Totton at around 2.15pm.

Both men were taken by ambulance to Southampton General Hospital.

The air ambulance was sent but was not used.

A temporary road closure was put in place at Woodlands Road, near the crash scene, to allow the emergency services to gain access.

The spokeswoman said Air Accidents Investigation Branch had been informed.
