“Our inspectors are on site gathering evidence and conducting interviews,” an AAIB spokesman said.

“We expect to recover the aircraft later today and take it to our facility in Farnborough (in Hampshire) where a detailed examination can take place while our investigation continues.” Wolferton lies within Sandringham Estate and is near the north Norfolk coast.

It’s not believed Her Majesty was in residence at the time of the incident.
