Emergency Landing

Apparently an a/c had to make an emergency landing at Liverpool Airport yesterday because it was running out of fuel.
The was a fire engine on the way there and it smashed into a car killing the driver.

I cant find out much about it, does anybody have any details? Goodison Blue?

How can a passenger carrying jet be running out of fuel? The only thing I can think of is that we had winds up to 100mph here yesterday. Maybe ATC kept them in a holding pattern until the winds calmed? But still its pretty unbelievable!
Oh, so ive heard, Liverpool wasnt its destination airport!

I saw the story originally on BBC Liverpool site but there's no link now

It was an EasyJet flight going to Stanstead which landed at Liverpool because of the winds causing lengthy holding times at Stanstead.

I think the pilot was worried that he would be low on fuel if he had continued to Stanstead and endured lengthy wait times.

It seems to have become a bit of a non story with the liverpool echo site not covering it

Tragic for the person killed in the road smash especially if it wasn't such an emergency as was first thought.
