TWO people were injured after a light aircraft crashed on a Moray estate.
The iconic yellow Tiger Moth which is a familiar sight in the skies above Moray crashed in a barley field at Shempston on Sunday night.
Emergency services raced to the scene after the crash was reported just before 8pm on Sunday night.
The two occupants of the aircraft, which is flown by a local group of aviation enthusiasts, were able to remove themselves from the wreckage of the aircraft.
They were then helped in to a waiting ambulance and taken to hospital. Their injuries were not thought to be life threatening.
Three fire appliances, police and ambulance crews attended the incident near Duffus.
Speaking at the scene, Grampian Fire and Rescue Service incident commander David Pattinson said: "There were two casualties who self rescued from the plane and were taken to hospital by ambulance.
"It crashed in an open field and our first task was to set up an inner cordon for the safety of the occupants and our crew, and isolate any potential ignition sources."
The Tiger Moth, which is owned by Robin Falconer of Shempston Estate, near Duffus, operates from a grass runway there. It is not clear how badly damaged it is.
It is likely there will be an accident investigation to determine the cause of the crash.
The names of the injured aircrew have not been released.
Mr Falconer was unavailable for comment.
