The BBC reported the airship, which undertook its first flight last week, had hit a telegraph pole.

Hybrid Air Vehicles, the manufacturer of the helium-filled airship, said no-one was injured during the second test flight.

“All crew are safe and well and there are no injuries,” it said on Twitter, without giving details of the incident.
