Yep,

I was on frequency when the pan call was made, roughly at or about 18:50.

Chap announced an engine out and announced single pilot IFR with six? SOB. Also asked for a radar vector to Southend.

I must say he seemed cool enough.

Hope he got down without too much stress.

Landed at STN just after emergency was declared. Tower was ready for inbound Bis Jet and alll landings and take-offs afterours were canx. Fire trucks positioned at holding points. Conditions were marginal CAT 1. A/c called lights at around 100 feet. Landed without problem. Fire crews stood down, end of story.
