Have your say

Fire crews from across Leeds rushed to Leeds-Bradford Airport this morning following reports that a aeroplane was due to make an emergency landing.

The first reports came in just after 7am today.

Fire crews from more than a dozen stations in Leeds attended the call.

It is understood that the plane made a landing around 7.30am and that all its passengers were able to disembark in the normal way. The Yorkshire Evening Post understands the emergency was caused by an electrical fault in the cockpit of the aircraft.

John Parkin, chief executive of Leeds Bradford Airport, said: “There was an incident this morning but that incident is now closed and there are no outstanding issues. No-one was injured and it was over in relatively quick time.”
