Apr 28 2011

Two bodies of two men have been found in a light aircraft that crashed into a lake in Essex.

The plane crashed into the lake at Ulting Lane in Langford, near Maldon, at about 1300 BST.

It was lifted from the water during the evening with the bodies of the pilot and passenger still in it.

The plane, a Russian-built Yak 52, was reported to have been flying in formation with two other aircraft shortly before the crash.

Emergency services were called by a member of the public and found the two-seater aircraft in the lake with its tail about 10ft (3m) under water.
