Aircraft off runway at LPL

Lots of local news coming in that a light aircraft has come off the runway at LPL in the last 30 minutes.
Will update further once confirmed

Emergency services are on scene, appears to be a private jet with four on board. No fatalities. Flights are being either cancelled or diverted

That's going to be a disappointment for the Blue Air flight currently over the Blackburn area and descending.

Re LFC owner; could be near the mark. The aircraft flew from Newark to Hanscom field, not far out of Boston, then to Liverpool.

The playback maybe holds a clue - nice radar circuit with a 5nm line up but just a tad high. Speed appears to be under control but still slightly high over the threshold.
Will have to wait for the report but haven't heard of many Global 6000 brake failures

Looks like the high speed turn off to me, perhaps too quick and skidded? It wasn't cold last night here, well no frost on the car in Kirkby which is about 12 miles away

Curiouser and curiouser..........too fast for the RET usually ends up at the upwind side of the curve. Will just have to have patience and see what AAIB comes up with.

Looks a bit low down where the main gear should be, could be the camera angle but if a gear leg has collapsed - cause or consequence?

According to the link in post#12, the AAIB have OK'd aircraft removal, and a specialist removal team is on site.

There have been previous moments with GLEX brakes... caused a fair amount of damage this 2008 event.. may of course be totally unrelated to this incident.

And there we are: the passenger was one of LFC owners, Mike Gordon, here or a "regular" meeting. Nothing regular about this one!

For what it's worth, RET (Rapid Exit Taxiways) at larger airports have a design speed (i.e. the maximum speed in which one can turn into them) of 50 knots in the wet.

See section 1.3.17 of the ICAO Aerodrome Design Manual / Part 2 / Taxiways, Aprons and Holding Bays and for which one would assume (based upon similar aircraft types listed that tome) that a Bombardier Global 6000 is likely classified as a 'code 3' type of aircraft with respect to RET design criteria.

Looking at the maps it dies indeed look like the high speed exit.
I note however a Ryanair from AGP, EI-FTD is inbound is she going to be diverted or is this the return to operations
