A Proper Risk Assessment Wasn't Carried Out For The Shoreham Air Show

An interim report in to the crash at the Shoreham Air show has found that the organisers were unaware of the pilots display plans.

Seven dead

A report into the crash at last year's Shoreham Air show says organisers failed to do a proper risk assessment.

It says the director wasn't aware of the manoeuvres the pilot was planning to do, before his vintage jet crashed onto a busy dual carriageway.

On the 22nd of August, the Hawker Hunter jet came down on the A27 in West Sussex after failing to complete a loop manoeuvre, eleven men died.

Now we are beginning get more information to try and help us understand what went wrong, it is just over 6 months since it happened.

Our reporter Bryony Waite is at the crash site in Shoreham and has some more details from the new report:

14 safety recommendations have made and we're expecting a full report in to the crash in a few weeks' time.
