Air safety authorities in the United Kingdom said Friday that a helicopter and an aircraft had been involved in a midair collision northwest of London.

Police said officers and members of other emergency services including the fire and ambulance services attended the scene.

Several people are feared dead after the crash above Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire. The manor said the crash did not happen at the site and there were no casualties at the manor.

The plane in the crash is understood to be a Cessna 152.

RAF Halton, which is around 10 miles away, said no military aircraft were involved.

"We can confirm that neither of the aircraft concerned has a connection with either our air force nor the military, and this is as much as we know at this time".

They added: "Wycombe Air Park can confirm that at 12 o'clock local today we were informed of an incident north-west of Aylesbury involving two aircraft from Wycombe Air Park". "Everyone is helping the emergency services". Officials confirmed there had been casualties, but were unable to give any further details.

At least seven fire appliances were called to the scene and two urban rescue vehicles.

"We're aware of a number of casualties following an incident this afternoon", Thames Valley Police said in a tweet.

Police say air crash investigators are being sent to the scene, but the priority is being placed on saving lives.

In May, a man was left fighting for his life after crashing a helicopter near Wycombe Air Park.
