Caused some inbounds to hold, but rwy reopened with a shortened minima..

I landed just after midnight local - looked like a small exec jet but a little difficult to be sure, they were talking then about reopening fully about midnight 30. Don't know what happened but it did not look like major damage.

Saw a BA757 and BA747-200 on Stand at Stansted-wondered why BA where in town!

BA 757 and 742 are LHR based, your point being, as the topic is about LGW?

I landed at 0035 with a 5kt tailwind on 08R with an available landing distance on atis of 2060m after being vectored for a while whilst they allowed a couple of departures from 26L at 'C'.
Some callsign came up that I didn't recognise after we landed and said that the aircraft was cleared and they were just sweeping up and full length would be available in 15mins.
Crew transport driver told us it was some biz jet that had snapped a leg off.
nothing in any news reports though so I trust everyone was ok just some dented ego's

Judging from your previous posts I know this will be difficult but could you try not to live up to your name?

Cessna Citation went off the taxiway onto the grass. Yes there were a couple of Divs to EGSS. Runway reopened for westerly departures, and easterly arrivals - with reduced length.
