Rumble / Airplane IncidentsA plane carrying Irish voters home for today's abortion referendum has been hit by another jet on the runway at London Stansted Airport.

Video filmed by a passenger on a Primera flight to Malaga this morning at around 11am shows the moment after the two planes collided.

"Can you see the damage on the other plane?" a voice can be heard saying in the video as the camera points towards a Ryanair aircraft.

According to reports, the wing of Primera flight PF2871 to Malaga clipped the tail of Dublin-bound Ryanair aircraft FR205 as they were both on the landing lane.

In a tweet, the airport said: "Following a minor ground incident, two aircraft due to depart were required to return to stand. All flights have now resumed and our runway is open and operational."
