Travellers at Edinburgh Airport are being told not to worry if they see fire engines which are taking part in a training exercise later.

The exercise to test the "effectiveness" of Edinburgh Airport's emergency plan will take place between 18:00 and 23:00.

The scenario involves an aircraft in flight declaring an emergency due to landing gear instrument failure.

It will simulate an aircraft accident in the hours of darkness.
