Passenger jet veers off runway at Leeds Bradford Airport

A jet airliner skidded off the runway at Leeds Bradford Airport (LBA) this afternoon as it came in to land amid wet and windy conditions.

The TUI flight from Corfu “moved off the runway whilst landing” at Leeds Bradford Airport, the holiday travel firm confirmed.

The airport said it was working with emergency services to evacuate passengers, and West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said there were “no reported injuries or fires”.

An LBA spokesman told the BBC: “We can confirm TUI flight TOM3551 arriving from Corfu at LBA this afternoon has moved off the runway whilst landing.

“We are working with the airline, relevant operations teams and emergency authorities to address this situation and remove passengers from the aircraft safely.”

Storm Babet has been inflicting travel disruption across the country today, with train services in Yorkshire also impacted.
