A Boeing 737 plane has come off the runway at East Midlands Airport sparking travel chaos. The plane suffered a runway excursion, meaning it veered off or overran the runway when landing.
The aircraft, a West Air Boeing 737, is reported to be stuck on the grass verge at the side of the runway. The runway has been closed until further notice.
All flights are being diverted to Manchester or Birmingham Airport. Flight tracker AirLive tweeted: “Runway closed at East Midlands Airport (UK) after runway excursion.”
