An emergency was sparked at an island’s airport today when a plane crashed into a fence after landing.
The Cessna 182 light aircraft touched down at Tiree at 11.14am after flying from Perth. But the plane veered off the runway and hit a boundary fence.
The airport’s firemen dealt with the incident and there were no injuries to the two occupants of the plane. Coastguards sent to the scene were not needed.
An airport spokesman said the incident was over quickly. A report will be made to the Civil Aviation Authority.
