BLACKBURN Rovers' Championship clash at Brighton & Hove Albion kicked-off 15 minutes later than the scheduled time of 3pm after a plane at the Shoreham Airshow in West Sussex crashed into cars on the A27. It has since been confirmed that seven people have been killed in the crash.

The Hawker Hunter crashed just north of Shoreham airport at about 1.20pm.

A further 15 people have been injured, with one in a critical condition at the Royal Sussex County Hospital.

Witnesses described a 'huge explosion' as the plane hit the ground. 

Eyewitness  Jason Gunn, 53, said: "I was watching the display from on top of my car.

"As it came down, it seemed like it didn't have enough power to lift it up.

"I saw it just going below the tree and I expected it to come up.

"But it didn't and suddenly - boom boom. It looked as if it split in half."
