A plane bound for Edinburgh Airport was forced to abandon take-off after colliding with a grounds vehicle.

The Ryanair flight, scheduled to take off from Budapest on Friday morning, was aborted after the aircraft received ‘minor damage’ during the collision.

Passengers were forced to transfer to another aircraft ‘as a precaution’ and faced a seven hour delay.

No one was injured as a result of the incident.

A Ryanair spokesperson said: “A Ryanair aircraft in Budapest on Friday morning (15 July) received very minor damage from a ground vehicle.

“As a precaution, passengers were offloaded from the aircraft and provided with refreshments and transferred to a spare aircraft which departed with a seven hour delay this afternoon.

“Ryanair sincerely apologises to affected passengers for any inconvenience.”
