Two hundred passengers flying from Manchester to Germany escaped unhurt after their plane slid off the runway in Munich.

The Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-300ER veered off the runway on landing at 12:10 local time, coming to a rest on grass.

The flight, SQ327, left Manchester at 09:00 GMT and was due to depart Munich for Singapore at 13:10 local time.

Alternative arrangements have been made for passengers travelling to Singapore.

A Singapore Airlines spokesman said no emergency evacuation had been needed.

He said the cause of the incident was not known but the airline would co-operate fully with an investigation into the incident.
