    An aircraft used by the Red Arrows display team has crashed at RAF Valley on Anglesey.

    The Ministry of Defence confirmed it was a Hawk aircraft and an emergency ambulance crew was sent to the scene at about 13:30 GMT on Tuesday.

    It is understood two people were on board when the aircraft crashed.

    RAF Valley is a base used to train UK fighter pilots and aircrew for mountain and maritime operations.

    An RAF spokesman said: “We are aware of an incident today at RAF Valley involving a Hawk aircraft. We are investigating the incident and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.”
