Light aircraft crashes near Sleaford...

A light aircraft crashed tonight in a field near near Sleaford, south Lincolnshire. Police say two men in their 30s were injured when the two-seater civilian aircraft they were flying in came down.

It is understood the pilot suffered minor injuries and the passenger was taken by ambulance to Lincoln County Hospital.

Electricity cables were also hit, causing power failures in Anwick and the nearby Ruskington. Crews are working to restore electricity to both villages.
