An elderly British couple thanked a pilot for "dropping in" after he crash-landed in their garden.

Eileen Watling, 71 and her 83-year-old husband Alfie were settling down to watch TV when a Cessna light aircraft carrying two people nose-dived into trees in their back yard.

Eileen said: "A man came sprinting up our drive and said a plane had just flown over his car and had crashed into our back garden. "Then the pilot came stumbling through our bamboo and leaves with blood on his head. His passenger followed, covered in fuel. They kept apologising but I just made light of it and said 'Thanks for dropping in'." Both men escaped with minor injuries.
