Plane crashes near Denmark beach
A private plane has crashed into the sea near a beach in Denmark, killing all four people on board.

Dozens of holidaymakers who were on the beach about 30km (20 miles) southwest of the capital Copenhagen saw the accident happen.

Ambulances, divers and a rescue helicopter were sent to the scene.

Witnesses said the plane had been flying very low when one of its wings touched the waves, sending the aircraft crashing into the sea.

The plane is reported to belong to Copenhagen Air Taxi, a small company based at the nearby Roskilde airport.
