Four people have been killed after a small plane crashed three miles to the south of Dubai International Airport.

Three Britons and a South African were aboard the UK-registered DA42 plane, UAE authorities said.

The four-seat plane was owned by Flight Calibration Services which is based at Shoreham Airport, in West Sussex.

The firm flies staff around the world to inspect and calibrate navigation aids – which include radars and landing systems for airports and airfields.

The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) says an investigation is under way.
