Mayday call from pilot

An air show pilot's Mayday call - made shortly before he ditched his aircraft in the sea - has been released.

The light aircraft came down in shallow water off Herne Bay during a display in the Kent town on Sunday.

Rescuers and colleagues have praised the pilot, who escaped with minor injuries, for his decision to ditch his plane in the water.
