Passengers injured on Jet2 Tenerife to Belfast flight

A number of passengers were slightly injured on a Tenerife to Belfast flight after a cabin crew trolley became loose and rolled to the back of the aircraft.

The BBC has reported that the incident happened as a Jet2 flight was coming in to land at Belfast International Airport around 1am on Sunday morning.

In a statement Jet2 apologised to all passengers on the flight, it's not known how many people were injured following the incident.

"LS382 from Tenerife to Belfast experienced an incident on landing this morning," a Jet2 spokesperson told the BBC.

"The aircraft taxied to its parking stand and all customers disembarked the aircraft as normal.

"The safety and care of our customers is our priority and we apologise to those who were delayed in their journey home and we apologise sincerely to anyone who was inconvenienced."

William Smyth from Belfast hurt his leg during the incident and told the BBC that it was a "scary" experience.

"We didn't know what it was, so you end up thinking all sorts," he said.

"It hit my leg because I was sitting near the aisle.

"Everyone was frightened and people screamed."

All passengers had to stay on the flight until injuries were assessed but they were released a short time later.

One passenger told the BBC that it was through luck that there were no serious injuries.

"There were a lot of children including babies on that flight," John Kerr said.

"It's not the way you want your holiday to end."
