Two men have had a lucky escape after their glider struck the corner of a hanger, whilst they were attempting a landing at Halton Airfield.

South Central Ambulance, the Air Ambulance and Bucks Fire and Rescue were called to the airfield at 5 to 5pm on Wednesday.

Rescuers say a two-seater glider had collided with the corner of a hangar just as they were landing - they had already landed but were still moving.

Ambulance crews, the Air Ambulance and Fire and Rescue crews from Aylesbury and Great Missenden were sent to the scene along with the Urban Search and Rescue team.

Firefighters used an electric saw and a hose reel and worked with air ambulance staff to release one man, uninjured.

The man was released with minor injuries before emergency services arrived.
