A plane crashed and caused several casualties at an air show in Brighton, on England’s south coast, emergency services said on Saturday.

The aircraft hit several cars on a main road, the A27, to the north of Shoreham airport, where the Shoreham Air Show is taking place, police said. It happened at around 1:20 pm (1220 GMT).

“There have been several casualties but we have no further information on these at the moment,” Sussex Police said in a statement.

Shoreham Air Show said on Twitter there had been a “major incident” and that emergency services were responding.

Media reports say the plane was a Hawker Hunter fighter jet, a type that dates from the 1950s, and that its pilot was pulled from burning wreckage.
