A man has walked away with only minor injuries after his light aircraft came down in a garden in Langdale Road in Up Hatherley, Gloucestershire.

The Cirrus single engine 4-seater plane landed at around 10.45 this morning.

An eyewitness sent in video footage of the plane as it went down:

Houses around the area have been evacuated as a precaution and investigations into the crash has began. Nobody else was been hurt.

Eye witnesses described what they saw:

Jeannie Bowers, 46, was standing in her partner's garden when she saw the incident unfold:

I was just making a coffee and I heard a plane in trouble. I looked up and there was a big pop and banging sound and then a whoosh of air.

The parachute went up and the plane slowly came down towards the ground gently turning and hanging from this parachute just towards me.

No one was hurt and it managed to miss every single building - the shed, the summer house and greenhouse.

It's just amazing how its come down and no one was hurt. It was very, very surreal. I can still see it coming down now.

It was a very strange experience and I am just glad no one was hurt.
