A plane has crashed into a cliff off the coast of the Isle of Man.
One person was on board when the horrific accident happened in the Port Erin area of the island today.
The condition of the pilot of the light aircraft is unknown.
Firefighters, police and Coast Guard crews are on site and Bradda Head remains “under police surveillance”.
Images show thick plumes of smoke appearing to rise from the beach to the cliff.
The public is asked to avoid the Bradda Road and Tower Road area.
A police spokesman added: “The water and air space around the site is also closed to the public.”
“There is also temporarily restricted airspace for drones and other light aircraft.”
A witness wrote on Twitter: “I immediately called 999 and witnessed the flames erupt after hearing a faint noise of aircraft engines, but wasn’t sure where they were.”
“The engine noise I heard was normal, but I can’t be 100% sure it was that plane as it’s close to the airport.”
Another said: “This is where I literally go hiking every day.”
“My mom and I were up there today 30 minutes before it happened.”
