Pilot aborts Birmingham Airport landing in heavy winds

A pilot trying to land a plane at Birmingham Airport was forced to abort the manoeuvre at the last moment due to heavy winds.

The Emirates flight from Dubai was due to touch down at 11:50 GMT.

Meanwhile a separate Flybe flight from Jersey, due to land at the same time, was diverted to East Midlands Airport because of the same problem.
