A father and his son narrowly avoided being killed in the Shoreham air disaster after a wedding limousine chauffeur let their car go ahead of his.

Maurice Abrahams, 76, a former soldier who had served in the Parachute Regiment, died in the blaze that engulfed drivers when the Hawker Hunter struck the A27, exploding into a fireball. Abrahams was driving a classic Daimler on his way to pick up a bride for her wedding when the plane struck him.

Michael Sturgess told how Abrahams let him on to the busy road, telling the BBC: “I had come on to the A27, and then he let me in because the traffic was so bad. We went through the traffic lights, the traffic lights went red and that’s when he got hit.”
