Airplane with 98 passengers veers off runway in blustery conditions Newsdesk Newsdesk

An airplane with 98 passengers on board veered off the runway in blustery conditions following its landing.

The plane was on its way to the terminal at Birmingham Airport when it veered off the tarmac.

Conditions were made difficult by the recent spate of wintry weather, and the airliner wobbled in the strong breeze.

All passengers safely disembarked from the Airbus A320 and were transferred to the terminal.

Emergency services were at the scene but no one was injured.

The plane, operated by Small Planet Airlines, had arrived from Paderborn in Germany.

A statement from the airport said: "An A320 aircraft belonging to charter company, Small Planet, has manoeuvred off the taxiway into grass after landing from Paderborn.

"Passengers have safely disembarked and have been bussed to the terminal. There are no reports of injuries."
