THE Ministry of Defence has confirmed they are ‘aware of an incident at RAF Valley involving a Hawk aircraft.'

The air base on Anglesey in North Wales is used as a training base for the RAF's Red Arrows aerobatic display team.

An eyewitness said they saw someone parachute form the plane just before it crashed.

The RAF is asking eyewitnesses with photographs of the incident to send them in to help with the investigation and not share them online.
