A Ryanair flight made an emergency landing at East Midlands Airport this morning after losing a wheel just after take-off from Stansted Airport.
The flight was bound for Copenhagen and had to be diverted after losing the nose wheel mid-air.
A spokesman from Ryanair said, “This flight from Stansted to Copenhagen diverted to Eat Midlands because of the loss of one of its two nose wheels after take-off. The aircraft landed safely in East Midlands, customers disembarked and will board a replacement aircraft shortly”.
