Narrative:
The aircraft was being flown on a student training sortie which included spinning. On entering a spin, the engine stopped. All attempts to re-start the engine failed. The instructor positioned the aircraft for a forced landing. Unfortunately, NI fields are quite small and it was impossible to stop the aircraft using brakes on wet grass. The aircraft stopped straddling a stone wall. Both the instructor and student were uninjured.
