A Sandon pilot who was in a critical condition after his jet crashed into a busy road during an airshow in Sussex has been released from hospital.

Andy Hill, who regularly took part in Imperial War Museum Duxford airshows, was in a medical induced coma after his Hawker Hunter jet plunged into the A27 in Shoreham last month, killing 11 drivers on the road.

A Sussex police spokesman said: “The pilot’s condition is improving.

“Police and investigators from the Air Accident Investigation Branch, who are conducting parallel investigations, are looking to interview the pilot as soon as possible.
