An RAF jet has crash-landed at Newcastle Airport after apparently colliding with a bird.

The Tornado, from RAF Marham in Norfolk, was diverted to the airport, where it landed at about 1700 BST and overshot the end of the runway.
An MoD spokesman said the two crew were not seriously injured and an inquiry into the crash would be held. The airport's only runway is currently closed and flights are being diverted to Durham Tees Valley and Manchester.
