Flights had to be diverted and delayed today after a Ryanair flight landed “hard” and then “got stuck” on a runway.

The flight from Faro in Portugal is believed to have suffered a landing gear malfunction after landing at Leeds Bradford Airport this morning.

Firefighters surrounded the Ryanair 737 flight after it landed at 8.45am.

One passenger tweeted: “A bit of drama as we landed at Leeds Bradford Airport this morning.

“A very hard landing followed by a very abrupt stop.

“Can’t tow the plane back to the terminal, so get on buses on the runway.”

Another social media user claimed a tire blew out.

This caused delays at the airport as an incoming Jet2 flight from Gerona was diverted to Manchester Airport due to the temporary runway closure.

Another flight, this time from Mahon, was diverted to East Midlands and a flight from Palma went to Manchester.

Several outbound flights were also delayed, including a Ryanair flight to Faro, a Jet2 flight to Paris and a Flybe plane to Belfast City.

Leeds Bradford Airport has confirmed firefighters have been dispatched to the runway.

The LBA spokesman said: “Our on-site fire crews were on the runway to support an incoming Ryanair flight that was having difficulty landing.

“Passenger safety is our top priority and our team acted promptly to deal with the incident.

“As part of this, we made the decision to divert four flights to nearby airports while supporting the flight. All passengers disembarked safely and operations have returned to normal.’
