A Hawker Hunter jet crashed into a main road on August 22 (Saturday) while performing during the Shoreham Airshow. Sussex police said the aircraft failed to pull out of a dive. Previous reports from police on Saturday said seven people died and more than ten people were injured in the incident, and have been treated for their injuries. Barry said on Sunday the task of clearing the scene has started, while investigation is underway.

“This has been an enormously traumatic incident and our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by the incident, from those who have suffered bereavement to those in the local community who are deeply shocked,” he said. Some victims have been named by their families earlier on Sunday, according to local media, though there’s no formal identifications from police. The pilot, who was pulled from the wreckage on the site remains in a critical condition. The road is still closed and will close for several days as investigation and maintaining works will continue, police said.

Mobile network operator EE said on Wednesday that it will launch Britain’s first 5G service in six major cities on May 30.

EE will switch on its 5G service in London, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Belfast, Birmingham and Manchester later this month, the Xinhua news agency reported.

The company also said that it will roll out 5G rapidly from Wednesday, with more than 100 new 5G sites per month being added, providing 5G in more cities: Bristol, Coventry, Leicester, Nottingham, Sheffield, Liverpool, Hull, Leeds, Newcastle and Glasgow.

Some media reports claimed that EE will launch a 5G network “without Huawei technology as originally planned”.

Under the new 5G network, EE said that some customers will break the one gigabit-per-second milestone on their 5G smartphones. The fastest speed possible when EE launched 4G in 2012 was just 50 megabits per second.

“This is the start of the UK’s 5G journey and great news for our customers that want and need the best connections,” said Marc Allera, CEO of BT’s consumer division. (IANS)
