Plane crash under investigation

Air accident investigators are due back in Co Wicklow today to examine the wreckage of a light aircraft that came down on Saturday, killing all four occupants.

The single-engine plane was en route from Gloucester to Kilrush in Co Kildare when it dropped from radar.

Rescuers pulled four bodies from the wreckage at Corriebrock Mountain yesterday - believed to be those of the pilot, his wife, their teenage son and his friend, all of whom were British nationals.

Post-mortem examinations are due to take place later today at Naas General Hospital.
