The pilot who was badly injured after his two seater PD 51 Mustang crashed in a Norfolk field is out of intensive care and in a regular ward at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

Maurice Hammond, from Eye, is said to be making slow progress as he recovers from his injuries caused by the crash, which happened on October 2 when the plane plunged into a field off Denton Road, Topcroft, near Bungay.

He had been airlifted to the hospital in a critical but stable condition.
