Aircraft pilot hurt in forest crash.
The alarm was raised by local people, who reported seeing an aircraft in trouble above Hogshead Lane, in Oakmere, close to Delamere Forest.
The aircraft came down in some trees, about 30ft above ground, and burst into flames.
The crash took place on land owned by the Forestry Commission, shortly after 9pm.
The pilot, who was the sole occupant of the plane, was rescued from the aircraft.
He was taken to the Countess of Chester hospital suffering from second-degree burns, which are not life - threat ening.
The crash site was sealed off to allow air accident investigators to attend the scene.
