A plane crash at Spence Airfield yesterday resulted in minor injuries to two people when the plane overturned and caught fire. Hope these are minor injuries. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-gloucestershire-19021237

An 'interesting' airfield, but not so challenging, although with a NW wind (as Friday) you do get some turbulent approaches due to curl-over. My Tipsy Trainer operated for many years from there on a mere 62hp. I'm glad to have heard that the two people involved in Friday's accident have none life-threatening injuries.
