Diverted Emirates plane comes off Birmingham taxi-way

A plane diverted from London Heathrow due to the freezing weather conditions has partly come off the taxi-way at Birmingham Airport.

The Emirates aircraft, a Boeing 777-300ER, was carrying 282 passengers and landed routinely at 1354 GMT, Birmingham Airport said.

Passengers described how the plane landed as usual but became stuck when taking too sharp a turn moving on to the taxi-way.
