Red Arrows jet in runway accident

The Ministry of Defence has launched an investigation after an RAF's Red Arrows plane overshot a runway as it came into land.

The incident happened at around 1.15pm in Jersey, the MoD said. Neither the pilot nor co-pilot was injured.

The Red Arrows, based at RAF Scampton, Lincs, were arriving in the Channel Islands to take part in aerobatics displays in Jersey and Guernsey on Thursday.

An MoD spokesman said: "One of the aircraft left the runway at Jersey airport this afternoon as it came into land.

"This was a minor incident. We will be investigating to see what the problem was.

"The aircraft was coming into Jersey in order to undertake displays in the area this week."
