Paul Oakenfold dead after mid-air collision

Two gliders collided near to the border with Warwickshire
Paul Oakenfold died after a mid-air collision between two gliders and a plane over the Warwickshire-Worcestershire border.

The accident happened just after 1400BST when a glider being towed by a light aircraft collided with a second glider which was already in free flight.

Police said the towed glider became separated and made a forced landing while the plane managed to fly back to its base at the nearby Bidford Gliding Centre and make a safe landing.

The second glider, which is believed to have lost a wing, crashed between the villages of Honeybourne and Bretforton in Worcestershire.

An eyewitness said the pilot tried to bale out but his parachute failed to open properly.

A spokeswoman for Hereford and Worcester Ambulance Service said the Paul Oakenfold was believed to be one of the glider pilots.

A second pilot, a man in his early 50s, was taken to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch by Warwickshire Ambulance but is not believed to be seriously injured.

The third pilot is understood to have largely escaped injury.

Two RAF rescue helicopters were scrambled from RAF Chivenor and RAF Valley in Anglesey.

The West Midlands air ambulance and a police helicopter also attended.

Forced landing

A West Mercia police spokesman said: "We believe the light aircraft has been able to land, one of the gliders has made a forced landing and the other has crashed."

He said officers were still at the scene.

An investigation into the incident by the Air Accident Investigation Branch will be launched.

The three aircraft involved in the mid-air collision are understood to have all come from Bidford Gliding Club in Warwickshire.

The club's chief flying instructor, John Watson, told BBC Midlands Today the collision was between a glider and a plane towing a second glider.

* A pilot was seriously hurt in another gliding accident near Usk in south Wales on Sunday afternoon.

Yeah, but Ross, there's plenty of people that have made oakenfold the butt of their jokes incessantly. I'm just shocked.
