Flight from Leeds Bradford Airport aborts take off amid reports of ‘bird-strike’ from passengers

A flight from Leeds Bradford Airport aborted take-off this morning and returned within 45 minutes as emergency services responded.

Spotters reported loud noises as the flight LS255 plane passed over Bingley and the FlightRadar24 tracker shows the plane – bound for Girona, Spain – flying in circles.

After departing at 7.08am, the plane landed at around 7.50am back at Leeds Bradford Airport.
