Light aircraft crash investigation begins

An air accident investigation team has started its inquiry into a light aircraft crash that has left one man dead and another in hospital.

The light aircraft came down in a field near Pontarddulais yesterday afternoon. The crash site is close to the M4 and a Garden Centre.

The alarm was raised after Swansea airport picked up a mayday message from the craft and emergency services were directed to the crash scene by walkers and cyclists who had heard the aircraft in difficulty.

When they arrived they found the passenger had been able to crawl out from the wreckage, but the pilot was more severely injured and died at the scene.
