East Midlands airport was closed (Runway said to be closed, flights still arriving) due to a West Atlantic Boeing 737-300 Frieighter (G-JMCP) leaving the runway into the Gravel causing the runway to be closed and the airports fire service to be scrambled to the aircraft. Aircraft due inbound were diverted to Manchester (MAN) or Birmingham (BHX) with some circling till the incident was cleared.
The airport is now operating a reduced service to both inbound and outbound flights, more info will come soon.
EDIT: Flights appear to be opperating normally with no reduced service for Arrivals.
Plane Appears to have been taxing of the runway when the Excursion occured
