A Vueling flight from Barcelona had to perform an emergency landing at Sevilla Airport just after 8,30pm on Wednesday when the front under-carriage wheel failed to operate.

The plane was carrying mostly Spaniards, but there were also Britons, French and Germans on board. None of the 150 passengers were injured in the incident, although some did need medical attention for shock, but the incident did bring chaos as Sevilla Airport was closed for a time. 26 flights were affected, most of them diverted to either Jerez or Málaga.

The airport reopened late on Wednesday night. Operators managed to tow the damaged plane from the runway at 2215.
