Newcastle Plane off the Runway

I've heard from a friend that a plane has come off the runway at NCL in the past 20mins or so. Looks as if other planes are circling the city. Any news on this?

Their website is redirecting to a default "traffic overload" page. It says the airport is open and aircraft are arriving and departing.

I've heard something similar - two Jet2's currently holding overhead (look like last night's mail flights positioning back in). AF gone to EDI, BA back to LHR(!) and KL to MME

Been told that passengers are being put onto coaches back to the terminal, so hopefully nothing too serious.

Should be a TOM1445 from Lanzarote which makes it a Boeing 737-800, G-FDZR.

Thomson slid off an icy runway this evening. Closed at the moment. They are trying to move the aircraft at the moment.

EXS008S must have gone dizzy. 10+ racetrack loops over NCL and 4 more over MAN. Last seen heading for LTN / STN?

Ok guys/girls.
To save ourselves from the inevitable why did this happen etc etc etc.My unofficial sources reveal the following:
Pilot error not adhering to SOP's.
Tailwind landing icy runway.
Had this been an Airbus,would not have happened.
nobody injured therefore not serious.Nothing to see here move on.
That should save at least 10 pages of the usual BS!

Cheers

Panda, you forgot:

I've landed in weather like this more times than you've had hot dinners, eyes closed, one arm tied behind my back blah blah blah etc.,

Also: My friend who's a pilot reckons...
