A pilot has been killed, after his ex-RAF jet crashed during an air display in Cheshire.

The 1960s Folland Gnat jet trainer was being flown as part of a privately-operated display team at the CarFest North event.
 
It came down in woodland near the Oulton Park race circuit.
 
Chris Evans, who helped organise the event in aid of Children In Need, told a news conference: "Just after 2pm, there was a tragic accident - the result of which was one of the pilots involved in a synchro display lost his life.
 
"Our condolences go out to his family who have been informed. The event will continue on the advice of the three aviation authorities we are currently involved with as part of the ongoing investigation into what happened.
 
"The police have also advised us that the best thing, and the safest thing to do, is to carry on with the event - bearing in mind there are 10,000 children here. That's what we're going to do."
 
An Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) spokesman said: "AAIB will be investigating and is sending a team to the site."
