Biplane makes emergency landing on Bolton golf course

A pilot had to make an emergency landing on a golf course when his biplane reportedly developed a mechanical problem.

He is said to be "fine but shaken" after touching down on a fairway at Westhoughton Golf Club in Bolton.

An air ambulance passing overhead at the time also landed to provide help.

The biplane was later removed from the fairway so golfers could continue their games.
