Grob G115, G-BOPT
Whilst flying solo circuits the student pilot encountered a rough running engine. He attempted to clear the problem without success and found himself high on the approach with no other area to land. The aircraft touched down at the end of the runway, coming to rest in rough ground with damage to the landing gear and propeller. The pilot was uninjured. No cause for the engine problem has been found although conditions were favourable for carburettor icing.
