A light aircraft that crash-landed in a field in Ross-on-Wye had a faulty fuel gauge, an investigation has found.

The Robin CEA DR400 suffered propeller damage during the crash 14 miles (23km) from Gloucestershire Airport just before 16:00 BST on 15 April.

An Air Accidents Investigation Branch report said there was insufficient fuel despite initial checks suggesting otherwise.

It said it was in the air about 10 minutes when the engine stopped.

None of the three people on board was injured.
