Plane gets stuck in verge at Birmingham Airport

A Emirates Boeing 777 aircraft which was about to take off from Birmingham Airport got stuck as it taxied to the runway.

The plane, which landed at the Midlands airport after snow shut down Heathrow, got stuck in the verge after snow made the ground soft.

The BBC's Mark Worthington said it took several hours for the passengers to get off the aircraft and onto a bus.
