Question Aircraft off runway at Luton.

Luton has just been closed for 4 hours due to a disabled aircraft blocking the runway, believed to have run on to the grass.
Anyone with more information please?

Would explain why there were so many police cars off of the roundabout at the bottom of the hill when I arrived at work half an hour ago.

G-CDCX (C750) landed at 1748 utc according to the machine, so it could be.
Latest information is that it looks as though Luton could be closed all night now.

That’s the second aircraft this year to come off the runway at Luton.

Runway now rumoured to be open. Confirmation anyone?

If so, a much quicker operation than when D-ABCD went off the runway earlier in the year.
