Two escape injury in Dublin runway crash

Two pilots have escaped injury after their small cargo flight crash-landed at Dublin Airport, disrupting the main runway for a time on Thursday morning.

It has emerged that the nose wheel of the plane buckled on landing, shortly after 8.30am.

"The aircraft is currently disabled on the runway awaiting the arrival of air accident investigators," a Dublin Airport spokesperson said.

The crosswind runway remained operational throughout, but some delays and diversions were caused by the incident.

Five flights were diverted to Shannon Airport, but have since been cleared to return to Dublin - where the airport is now said to be operating normally, with only a minor impact on services.

Passengers are advised to arrive as usual, but to contact their airline for the latest flight information.
