A woodland walk is to honour the crew of a bomber plane which crashed in a Sheffield park during the Second World War.

New research by military historian Paul Allonby has shed fresh light on the fate of the crew of the B17 bomber Mi-Amigo who all perished when their four-engined bomber crashed into a wooded hillside behind what is now Endcliffe Park’s cafe.

Now Sheffield Council is to put up signage in the park – where an annual memorial service is held – to guide visitors to the memorial to the bomber crew.
