Twelve fire engines from across the county were called to the airport just after 2.30pm today, after an emergency landing was requested by a KLM flight on its way from Manchester to Amsterdam.

The pilot requested the emergency landing at the airport after becoming aware of an electrical problem on the plane, which was carrying 114 passengers.

Fire crews were not required and the plane landed normally at 2.37pm.

The passengers, who left the plane at 2.43pm, are now waiting for the flight to take off again.

Crews from Carrow, Earlham, Hethersett, Attleborough, North Walsham, Cromer, Sprowston, Long Stratton, Wroxham, Aylsham, Dereham and Wymondham went to the airport.

They were joined by a fire control unit and an environmental protection unit.
A spokesman for Norwich Airport said the fire crews were called out “as part of an established emergency procedure”.
