Aircraft narrowly avoid mid-air smash near Eastbourne

Two aircraft only just missed colliding with each other over East Sussex because one of the pilots took evasive action, a report has found.

Footage shows a microlight and CitationJet missing each other by just a few hundred feet near Eastbourne on 7 March.

Microlight flight instructor Tom Harding was teaching a student at the time but was able to "execute a steep turn to the right".
