On behalf of the Council of Ministers and the States Assembly, I would like to extend our condolences to the families of the two people who died today when a light aircraft crashed off the west coast of Jersey. We were deeply saddened to learn of the accident. I would like to thank all those who took part in the search and rescue operation, which was coordinated by Jersey Coastguard and involved all the emergency services.
