Two people escaped unharmed after their light aircraft made an emergency landing in a field near Swansea Airport.

The twin-seater single-engine Piper aircraft ended up in a hedge at Manor Farm just after 13:30 GMT on Saturday.

Three engines from Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service attended and made the plane safe.

A report will be prepared by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch of the Department of Transport.

They were members of a flying club based at Swansea.

No-one from the club wanted to comment.
