After takeoff the aircraft failed to accelerate and climb and hit a hedge at the end of the runway on the airfield perimeter before coming to a stop shortly afterwards. The aircraft was damaged but the pilot and passengers were uninjured and vacated the aircraft without difficulty. The conditions at the time of the flight were such that there was serious risk of carburettor icing at any power setting.
