A MAN suffered a broken leg and minor injuries following a plane crash in the district.

The light aircraft came down in a field at Shotteswell just before noon on Monday morning (February 23).

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “The aircraft had been carrying two occupants at the time of the incident.

“One man believed to be in his 70s was treated for a suspected fractured leg. He was fully immobilised and given pain relief at the scene before being airlifted to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford for further assessment and treatment.

“A second man, believed to be in his late 60s, had sustained minor injuries. He was assessed and discharged at the scene.”
