easyjetPassengers have been left stranded at Manchester Airport after a tow truck got stuck under an EasyJet plane.

 

The Copenhagen-bound flight was damaged after a collision with a tow truck on the ground. Two other flights were delayed following the incident. It caused disruption to flights and passengers hoping to fly and they tweeted their disappointment.

 

It is believed a problem developed with the tow bar that connects the tug to the aircraft.

 

A spokeswoman for easyJet confirmed that, all passengers embarked normally and have been provided with refreshments and overnight accommodation.

 

A Manchester to Basel flight was also delayed.

 

A Manchester airport spokeswoman said that, there was an issue involving a tug during pushback with an aircraft on the airfield, which has been resolved. She also added that, there were some knock-on delays to a small number of flights and passengers but normal services have now resumed and no further delays are anticipated.
