A Ryanair plane lost one of its nose wheels and had to perform an emergency landing at East Midlands Airport.
The flight from London Stansted to Copenhagen was forced to make an emergency landing on Friday morning at around 9.15am.
The flight took off from the London airport at 8.07am and was scheduled to arrive at 11.45am in Copenhagen.
The aircraft is a Boeing 737-8AS.
A nose wheel is a landing wheel under the nose of an aircraft.
A spokesman for Ryanair said: “This flight from Stansted to Copenhagen (September 15) diverted to East 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.”
East Midlands Airport said the aircraft was diverted due to “technical difficulties” but has landed safely.
The airport said there will be “minor delays” to flights.
