Emergency services have raced to the site of a plane crash in a back garden in Wales

Early reports indicate the pilot of the aircraft, believed to have been the only person on board, has been taken to hospital after the plane plummeted to the ground in Cae Bach Aur in Llangefni.

A spokesperson for North Wales Police said: ‘At 1.44pm today (10 February) we received reports of a light aircraft crashing close to a residential area in Bodffordd, near Llangefni. 

‘Officers attended the location, along with ambulance and fire crews.

‘The male pilot was the only occupant of the aircraft, and he was subsequently conveyed to hospital by Air Ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries. No other injuries were reported from the scene.’

A representative for the Welsh Ambulance Service added: ‘We were called today at 1.42pm to reports of an incident at Bodffordd, Anglesey. 

‘We sent one emergency ambulance to the scene, where the crew were supported by a Cymru High Acuity Response Unit paramedic, an operations manager and a pre-hospital immediate care specialist from the North Wales Emergency Doctors Service.

‘Advanced critical care support was delivered by the Emergency Medical Retrieval and Transfer Service in a Wales Air Ambulance charity helicopter. One person was taken by road to hospital.’

It follows just over a week after a small plane crashed and set fire to a waterfront mobile home park in Florida. 

Several people are said to have died in the incident, which saw a single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza crash-land at the Bayside Waters mobile home park in Clearwater shortly after 7pm on February 2.
