Family pay tribute as light aircraft crash victim named

The family of one of the two men killed in a light aircraft crash in Essex yesterday have paid tribute to him, saying they love him "more than anything in the world".

Simon Chamberlain, 29, was travelling as a passenger when the Yak 52 plane downed after flying out of North Weald airfield. His family said:

Lizzie, his wife, has lost her best friend and soul mate. His son, Charlie, who will be two years old in August, has lost his father. And his parents, Paul and Steph, have lost a loving son. We love him more than anything in the world.

Our hearts also go out to the other person involved in this tragedy.

Police have said they are not in a position to identify the pilot, but confirmed yesterday that he was also from Essex.
