Investigations are continuing after a plane operated by Loganair came off a runway at Stornaway Airport on the Isle of Lewis last week, leaving four people injured.

The Saab 340B was carrying 25 passengers and three crewmembers on the flight to Glasgow when it left the runway and came to rest on grass at the airport on Friday morning (January 2nd).

It is believed the plane was caught in strong crosswinds, with Police Scotland confirming it is now working with the Air Accidents Investigation Branch to fully investigate the circumstances of the incident.

The police force also confirmed two men were hospitalised following the incident, with two women suffering minor injuries.

Loganair added in a statement: “All passengers and crew were safely evacuated and returned to the airport's terminal.”
