THREE people were taken to hospital after a light aircraft crashed in Abergavenny yesterday.

Crews from Abergavenny, Brynmawr, Ebbw Vale and Usk were called to the A40 at around 3.25pm.

An aircraft, with 120litre of fuel on board, had trouble landing before crashing onto the carriageway.

The pilot and two passengers were treated for minor injuries. No one else was hurt.

A spokeswoman for South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said crews had to make a fuel spillage safe and remained at the scene to ensure the safe removal of the aircraft.

Crews remained at the scene until the plane was taken to a recovery yard at 8.42pm.
