A plane was forced to land in a field after getting into difficulties.

The light aircraft had just taken off from Fife Airport on the edge of Glenrothes when the pilot had to take evasive action.

It’s believed the small Cessna plane suffered some sort of technical failure, with reports suggesting it ‘stalled’.

Everyone on the aircraft escaped from the bumpy landing unharmed.
