Heard about this on Newsbeat this evening - they said flights couldnt divert to Durham tees Valley due to them dealing with "a problem" there. Anyone know what occured there, if anything??
BBC News says another Tornado also suffered a birdstrike and was going to land at Durham (presumably as an emergency!) but then continued to RAF Leeming. So probably that.
