Several planes had to turn around and fly to different airports today after strong winds from Storm Ewan made landing too dangerous.

The pilot eventually had to admit defeat and ascend to the skies again to land at a different airport.

An EasyJet flight from Geneva also faced similar problems at Leeds Bradford International Airport today.

The plane was diverted to Manchester airport where it was able to land at 12.46pm.

Easyjet apologised to its customers on its website: ‘We’re sorry that your flight has diverted to Manchester airport.

‘This is due to strong winds in Leeds Bradford, that are unfortunately above limits to be able to land.’

Storm Ewan has brought high winds, icy conditions and snow to the country.

The UK experienced gusts of up to 60mph in the north-west and there were also severe weather warnings in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

‘The area of strongest winds will arrive over north-west Wales late on Sunday morning and clear the north-east of Scotland on Monday morning,’ the Met Office said after issuing a yellow alert.

Last week Storm Doris caused travel disruption, damaged buildings and sent debris flying that led to the death of a woman.

The current weather system is known as Storm Ewan in Ireland but not the UK because conditions are not severe enough for it to be categorised as a storm over here.
