Air and sea search after Pembrokeshire jet crash

Recommended Posts

A major air and sea search has been launched off Fishguard, Pembrokeshire, amid reports that a military jet may have crashed. Milford Haven coastguards say residents in Trefin reported two fast jets flying low overhead at around 19:10 GMT. Moments later there were reports of a loud blast and reports that an aircraft may have ditched. Coastguards have called out the rescue helicopter from RAF Chivenor as well as two all-weather RNLI lifeboats. Coastguard rescue teams as well as police, the fire service and ambulances have been called to the area.

 

The RNLI has launched its all-weather lifeboats at Fishguard and St Davids. Sue Whitmore, who runs the Old School Hostel in Trefin, said she had heard what sounded like a light aircraft circling overhead.

She said other villagers had told her they had also heard an aircraft followed by a bang. At the Ship Inn pub people report the emergency services have been searching an area between Trefin and St Nicholas. "There are lot of emergency services," said one bar worker.

 

An MoD spokesman confirmed that the reports do not relate to a military aircraft
