Diverted plane comes off taxi-way


A plane diverted from London Heathrow due to the freezing weather conditions has partly come off the taxi-way at Birmingham Airport.

The Emirates aircraft, a Boeing 777-300ER, was carrying 282 passengers and landed routinely at 1354 GMT, Birmingham Airport said.

While proceeding to the terminal, it "inadvertently" taxied on to the grass, leaving a set of wheels stuck.
