Collisions with balloons at Crewe 20/3/43

Hi guys

I've read that on 20 March 1943, a Wellington from Litchfield and an Oxford from Cranwell both collided with barrage balloons at Crewe; all crews/passengers killed (12 in total).

Has anyone further details - I assume the weather was bad in that area at the time.

Cheers
Brian
