A PLANE had to make an emergency landing at East Midlands Airport last night.

Passengers said that they could smell smoke as they left the plane, which had travelled from Ibiza, by the emergency exits.

Some passengers climbed out on to the wing of the Jet2 plane after it landed at about 9.10pm on Wednesday, witnesses said.

Others left by emergency yellow chutes.

Witness Malcolm Yates said there was a 'strong electrical burning smell' in the cabin and people were screaming.

An airport spokesman said full safety procedures were followed.
