A Flybe plane on its way to Inverness has crashed with its nose down at Belfast International Airport following an emergency landing.

Flight BE331 suffered technical difficulties after it took off from Belfast City/George Best airport around 11.20am today.

It had to dump fuel to reduce weight before coming into Belfast international, according to Flybe.

After landing nose-down on the runway around 1.30pm fire engines rushed to the plane. There were 52 passengers and four crew members on board the flight.

A Flybe spokesperson said: “Our primary concern is for the welfare of the passengers and crew. All statements relating to this incident will be posted.”

So far there has been no information about any possible injuries caused by the emergency landing.
