Pilot tells how he was forced to crash-land his light aircraft

A pilot has relived the moment he had to crash-land his light aircraft.

Jonathan Cobb had just taken off in his Cirrus SR22 from North Weald in Essex alongside co-pilot John Beech when a warning light came on.

In his first broadcast interview, Mr Cobb told how he deployed the plane's parachute, designed to hold the weight of the aircraft and slow its descent.

They made an emergency landing in a field in Benington, Hertfordshire, and were both "astounded to be walking away in one piece".
