Aldham: Investigation continuing into plane crash that killed pilot

The light aircraft came down at Aldham, near Hadleigh, around 11.20am on Saturday.

A man’s body was found in the wreckage of the aircraft by firefighters.

Police said last night formal identification of the man – who was flying alone – had not yet taken place.

A spokesman for the Air Accident Investigation Branch said they were continuing to work out what caused the plane to crash land.
