Two men die as light air­craft crashes in lake

Halifax Courier - - Uk+world -

Two men have died af­ter a light air­craft clipped trees and crashed into a lake.

The two-seater plane, thought to be a vintage Yak and ca­pa­ble of aer­o­bat­ics, was one of three air­craft fly­ing in for­ma­tion be­fore it came down, wit­nesses said.

The emer­gency ser­vices worked to re­cover the bod­ies from the wreck­age, at the bot­tom of a deep and “murky” fish­ing lake in Mal­don, Es­sex, on Thurs­day.
