It's being reported the pilot of the plane that crashed at the Shoreham Air show, was from a village near Royston.

It's thought eleven people were killed, when the aircraft crashed into cars on a main road.

The pilot was pulled from the wreckage, and is in a critical condition in hospital.

He has been named in reports as Andy Hill, a former RAF pilot.

A further 14 people were injured, four of whom were taken to hospital, after the jet crashed at around 1.20pm on Saturday, shortly after beginning its display in front of thousands of spectators.

Horrified onlookers described seeing the plane flying low to the ground followed by a ``huge ball of fire and black smoke''.

Footage posted online showed the jet carrying out a loop manoeuvre high in the air before smashing into the road in a huge fireball after failing to pull up in time.
