The East Lancashire man who died following the aircraft crash at Caernarfon Airport yesterday has been named as Iain Nuttall.

Mr Nuttall, 37, a lorry driver from the Blackburn area, was on board the plane with his young son and his 61-year-old father, who was flying the plane.

The trio were flying in a four-seater Piper Cherokee which had taken off from Fly Blackpool at Blackpool airport earlier in the day.

According to witnesses the aircraft may have clipped trees as it came to land at one of the Welsh airport's two runways.
