Immediately after takeoff from Durham Tees Valley Airport, the crew found difficulty in controlling the aircraft in pitch using the control yoke. They found that the pitch trim wheel and engine condition lever friction wheel had locked together, jamming both controls. The aircraft returned to the airport with the crew using engine power to assist in controlling pitch and an uneventful landing was made.
