Planes in 'near miss' at Barcelona airport

Footage emerges apparently showing the moment two aeroplanes almost collide on the runway at Barcelona's El Prat Airport.

A plane spotter captured footage appearing to show the moment two aeroplanes almost collided at a Barcelona airport.

An Airbus 340 is shown crossing the runway at El Prat Airport as a flight from Moscow is coming in to land. The pilot of the Boeing 767 from Russia then aborts the landing.

The plane then lands safely on the runway shortly afterwards. Officials have denied passengers were in danger at any point.
