Two people were injured after an aircraft crashed in a corn field in South Mimms.
Police were called by a member of the public at 2.55pm yesterday after a small aircraft crashed in a field near Earls Lane.
The caller had seen the aircraft circling very low and seemingly out of control, and said that it looked like it had crashed into a corn field.
There was no smoke coming from the aircraft, and the man flying the plane walked out of it after it landed.
Ambulance services were called at 2.53pm, and sent an ambulance officer, ambulance crew and a HEMS air ambulance to the scene.
They treated two patients for minor injuries before taking them to Barnet General Hospital via land ambulance for further care.
Fire services also attended to make the scene safe.
