Flybe flight on way to Scotland makes crash landing
The Inverness-bound service was forced to come down in Belfast without its nose gear.
A plane on its way to Scotland has made a crash landing after an emergency.
Emergency services were called to Belfast International Airport following the landing at 1.40pm on Friday.
The Belfast to Inverness service, which was carrying 52 passengers, was forced to circle at 3800 feet due to problems with the plane's landing gear.
It later made a crash landing without its nose gear in Belfast, resulting in the runway closing and the fire service being called.
One passenger has been taken to hospital with a hand injury.
A spokesman said: "Flybe can confirm there has been an incident involving one of our Bombardier Q-400 aircraft, flight no BE331, which landed with no nose gear in place.
"The aircraft departed from Belfast City at 11.07am bound for Inverness. The incident occurred at Belfast International Airport at approximately 1.30pm.
"There are 52 passengers on board and four crew members. Our primary concern is for the welfare of the passengers and crew."
