Plane Crashes Into Anglesey Garden Near Llangefni

Emergency services are at the scene of a plane crash on Anglesey. North Wales Live is reporting that a plane has crashed into a garden near Llangefni.

A North Wales Police spokesperson said: “Officers are currently attending an incident in the Cae Bach Aur area of Llangefni. Fire and ambulance crews are also in attendance. We ask that the public please avoid the area whilst we remain at the scene.”

A police spokesman told North Wales Live: “At 1.44pm today (February 10) we received reports of a light aircraft crashing close to a residential area in Bodffordd, near Llangefni. Officers attended the location, along with ambulance and fire crews. The male pilot was the only occupant of the aircraft, and he was subsequently conveyed to hospital by air ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported from the scene.”

Arwel Jones, 56, who lives a few houses down from the crash, told the BBC he heard the light aircraft’s engine cut out. “It was over our estate and you could hear that the engine was getting starved on fuel and just ticking over,” he said. “He was so low to the ground and he just ploughed down into a tree in a neighbour’s garden. I couldn’t believe my eyes. When we saw that happening I was just hoping he hadn’t crashed into anybody or into anybody’s house.”

Mr Jones went to check on the pilot, whom he described as “okay and talking”, the BBC reports. There are not believed to be any casualties.
