A wedding car was among the vehicles destroyed when a vintage jet plane crashed onto the A27 at Shoreham yesterday.

The Daimler had been on its way to pick up a bride to take her to her wedding.

The car, which had its roof ripped off by the impact, belonged to Chariot Chauffeurs, with the company’s Jay Sherwin telling the Sun on Sunday newspaper: “I can confirm that it is one of our cars but at this stage I do not know what happened to the driver.”

Emergency services have confirmed that seven people died in the incident and the A27 at Shoreham will remain closed today.
