Shortly before 6pm, crews from Castletown and Port Erin were called to the airport along with an Enhanced Rescue Unit from Douglas.

A full emergency was declared after an engine on a British Airways SAAB 9000 aircraft caught light as the plane was starting up.

The captain shut down the aircraft and the incident was over within 25 minutes. Nobody was injured.
