Two men have been rescued after their light aircraft crashed. 

Crews were called by the Ambulance Service after the aircraft crashed into a field in Stebbing. 

On arrival firefighters reported that one of the men was trapped inside the aircraft and worked to release him. 

Incident Commander Scott Meekings said:

"When we arrived the aircraft was upside down.
