Following the tragic incident at yesterday’s Shoreham Airshow, the Royal Air Forces Association, the event organisers and Brighton City Airport are continuing to work closely with the emergency services.
Our thoughts are with those who have been killed or injured, their families and friends and all those who have been affected by the events. Today’s airshow has been cancelled as a mark of respect.
We would also like to pay tribute to the emergency services for their work at this distressing time.
Police have now announced people can now collect their cars from the site. However, due to a height restriction on the route away from the airport vans, people-carriers and similar sized vehicles cannot leave the site at this time. Motorists are being asked to avoid the A27 in the Shoreham area while investigations into the crash continues.
Sussex Police and the Air Accidents Investigation Branch have asked that anyone with photographs or video footage that may help with their investigations should send their contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not send files, just contact details and information about the material you have.
