This accident occurred when a Royal Air Force aircraft crashed on returning from an operational flight. The causes of the accident are being investigated by a court of inquiry. The crew of seven and one civilian were killed and two civilians were injured. Four cottages and a farmhouse were destroyed. I am sure that the House would wish to join with me in expressing sympathy with the relatives of those who lost their lives and with those injured as a result of this regrettable accident.
