The flight was bound for Copenhagen and had to be diverted after losing the nose wheel mid-air.

A spokesman from Ryanair said, “This flight from Stansted to Copenhagen diverted to Eat Midlands because of the loss of one of its two nose wheels after take-off. The aircraft landed safely in East Midlands, customers disembarked and will board a replacement aircraft shortly”.

The incident involving the Ryanair Boeing 737 caused some delays at East Midlands Airport but there were no casualties following the event.
