"A passenger plane carrying 37 people has managed to land safely despite one of its engines shutting down in mid-air. Emergency services rushed to Stornoway Airport on Lewis after receiving a call just before 3pm on Wednesday.
The plane, a propeller-driven Saab 340 operated by Flybe, departed from Glasgow and was coming in over the Minch when it reported the fault. Passengers reportedly said both the pilot and crew had dealt with the emergency well, after the plane landed with just one working engine. A spokeswoman for Highlands and Islands Fire and Rescue Service said: "We had two crews on stand-by but luckily the plane landed safely."
No-one was injured in the incident".
