From FlightRadar looks like it was getting rather close to the end of the runway.

Heavy rain at the time. Reports suggesting no injuries.

Read that they decided the grass was a better option than over running.

Sound plausible?

Looks like it might take some digging to get it out

The weather in Yorkshire, as elsewhere in the UK, is atrocious at the moment.

An ignorant question... it doesn't look like there was an emergency evacuation (no slides). Is that normal in an incident like this?

Or is it better to keep everyone in their seats if there is no imminent danger?

According to NOTAM C5926/23 the airport closed until 0100 BST Saturday. At this early stage this may be a bit optimistic, unless removal equipment, including that needed to make a temporary stable surface to get the aircraft back onto the asphalt, is readily available.

Generally, yes (my bolding to emphasize the key part of your question).
And it's a good question.

Keeping them in their seats is good, as dragging your suitcase in the mud is not optimal.

Apparently it’s just “moved off” the runway. Best not use any stronger language such as “skidded off” or “departed from” so as not to frighten the kids…

Hopefully no injuries other than to trousers.

That's as it may be, the problem is what it "moved off" into, very soft ground?

Air bags, diggers and lots of steel matting required.

And a good answer. Slides don’t behave well in strong winds, and pax don’t behave well when let loose.

Looks like a G/A on 14, and possibly one on 32 as well…
