A 16-year-old Cheshire girl has been killed in a hang glider crash in Derbyshire.

She was taking part in a training flight at Darley Moor in Ashbourne when the glider crashed on Friday afternoon.

The teenager was taken to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham but died later from her injuries.

Derbyshire Police said they were working alongside air accident investigators to find out what caused the accident.

A spokeswoman for the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said two investigators were working at the scene of the crash.

She said: "Investigations continue today. The glider will be taken to AAIB headquarters in Farnborough."

The crash happened at an airfield operated by Airways Airsports.

In March, a 52-year-old man died in a hang glider crash in Derbyshire's Peak District, near Castleton.
