Any reports from Madrid concerning an A 330-200 that while taxying in to a finger at T1 ingested a pneumatic hose into No.1 engine ? The hose was part of a ground air cycle machine; looks suspiciously like a big worm of the garden variety, albeit owned by Iberia. Aircraft AOG, pilots reported strong vibrations as they shut down, claiming they never saw the intrusive yellow hose during the docking.

Whoever cleared the aircraft on to stand, either by switching on the guidance lights or giving visual signals, should have made sure that the area was clear for the type of aircraft parking.
