A West Hallam couple died after their plane ditched into the sea as it approached the airport after the pilot became disorientated by fog, an inquest has heard.

Carl and Kathryn Whiteley would have been killed instantly after a high-speed, high-intensity crash shortly after 10am on September 4 2013.

Sarah Chatburn, one of the couple’s two daughters, gave evidence at their inquest at Jersey, where the crash happened.
