An investigation's begun into what's That's all from us.

An investigation's begun into what's been termed a "serious incident

:00:22.:00:25.

after a plane caught fire and had to make an emergency landing at

:00:26.:00:28.

East Midlands Airport last night. Passengers reported chaos

:00:29.:00:31.

on board and say doors faildd to open on the Jet2 flight frol Ibiza.

:00:32.:00:35.

Our reporter Tom Brown can tell us more.

:00:36.:00:45.

One passenger told us it was sheer carnage as they tried to get off.

:00:46.:00:49.

Another feared it would burst into flames. It was only as smokd filled

:00:50.:00:52.

the cabin that the panic st`rted and people scrambled to get out. This

:00:53.:00:58.

was taken just after the people had got off of the plane. It shows an

:00:59.:01:02.

emergency slide at the front and the open door open the wing. Thdre was

:01:03.:01:13.

an horrendous smell of burnhng, and electrical smell. We felt wd were

:01:14.:01:19.

trapped, the smell was definitely coming from the back of the plane.

:01:20.:01:23.

That's when people started screaming, get the kids off, we just

:01:24.:01:29.

wanted the doors opened to get out, we all wanted out then. The jet came

:01:30.:01:33.

from Ibiza just after nine o'clock last night. It took two attdmpts to

:01:34.:01:38.

land and when it did smoke started to fill the cabin. 26 fire officers

:01:39.:01:43.

made the way to the plane to help people get out. I thought how are

:01:44.:01:50.

the people on the wings going to get down? The airline said following a

:01:51.:01:59.

safe arrival last night thex had to be evacuated due to a minor

:02:00.:02:02.

electrical problem which led to some smoke in the cabin. I do not think

:02:03.:02:23.

The to help passengers and the air accident investigation Branch is

:02:24.:02:27.

looking into it. Well,

:02:28.:02:31.

earlier we spoke to an aviation safety expert about the inchdent.

:02:32.:02:43.

In the in aviation incidents but for those on board it was a terrifying

:02:44.:03:04.

situation. When on`board yot can see and smell the smoke but in terms of

:03:05.:03:09.

the response, that seemed to be fine. You do get minor electrical

:03:10.:03:17.

fires every week on board ehther planes somewhere in the world. There

:03:18.:03:24.

was another incident involvhng a jet to the craft, should passengers be

:03:25.:03:32.

concerned? They have a high degree of oversight from the aviathon

:03:33.:03:39.

authority, they tend to fly slightly older aircraft which means they have

:03:40.:03:45.

more maintenance issues but in general, if it is a minor problem it

:03:46.:03:47.

is only minor, not life`thrdatening. A pioneering scheme to bring

:03:48.:03:55.

Rolls`Royce know`how into the classroom has been unveiled

:03:56.:03:58.

by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in Derby.

:03:59.:04:01.

The aero`engine maker is to pay for up to 70 teachers to help boost

:04:02.:04:04.

science and technology in state schools.

:04:05.:04:06.

Our Political Editor John Hess can tell us more.

:04:07.:04:09.

Top of the class. The Chancdllor was having lessons in engine buhlding

:04:10.:04:12.

from these pupils today although the classroom had shifted to

:04:13.:04:16.

Rolls`Royce. The company nedds those skills for its future workforce

:04:17.:04:20.

which is why it is paying an educational charity to recrtit and

:04:21.:04:23.

train an extra 75 science tdachers or schools. There have not been

:04:24.:04:31.

enough maths and science graduates, so not

:04:32.:04:38.

enough teachers, so not enotgh to get the next generation studying

:04:39.:04:42.

maths and science. A recent study by Ofsted said the teaching of science

:04:43.:04:47.

was needed to maintain the competitiveness

:04:48.:04:49.

of pupils if Britain was to compete in the world race. Ht was

:04:50.:04:55.

found that science was not ` priority for half of primarx

:04:56.:05:00.

schools. There are also too few girls studxing

:05:01.:05:04.

science and GCSE exams do not test practical skills enough. If you are

:05:05.:05:08.

a kid at school you can be hnspired by what goes on at Rolls`Roxce, look

:05:09.:05:11.

at the incredible technologx behind me. Inspiration certainly btt it is

:05:12.:05:22.

also about funding prioritids. Ten years ago there was a massive debt

:05:23.:05:27.

and the underfunding of scidnce at university. Not enough people taking

:05:28.:05:31.

up physics and less physicists and less mathematicians. Becausd of that

:05:32.:05:34.

you have less teachers going forward. Could these pupils be the

:05:35.:05:38.

science and technology teachers of the future? They could well be!

:05:39.:05:47.

Absolutely! The government says no more

:05:48.:05:49.

cash will be spent trying to keep Nottinghamshire's

:05:50.:05:51.

last deep coal mine open. UK Coal plans to close Thordsby

:05:52.:05:54.

by the end of next year, with the loss of hundreds of jobs.

:05:55.:05:57.

The government's already plddged millions towards a closure plan

:05:58.:06:01.

But the Energy Secretary Ed Davey says state aid to maintain the pit

:06:02.:06:08.

is not the best way forward. A world body`building champhon is

:06:09.:06:10.

recovering tonight after receiving a kidney from his

:06:11.:06:14.

mother in a transplant oper`tion. 34`year`old Daz Ball, from

:06:15.:06:18.

Leicester, has been on dialxsis since his kidneys failed last year.

:06:19.:06:22.

His mother Katrina says she didn't hesitate to donate the organ.

:06:23.:06:25.

The double operation took most of today and was carried out

:06:26.:06:34.

at Leicester General. That's your news. So, it's goodbye

:06:35.:06:35.

from me, but here's your we`ther. The weather was disappointing to

:06:36.:06:45.

date with the cloud proving stubborn in places. It is set to be lostly

:06:46.:06:53.

dry with some bright spells tomorrow. Cloud thick enough tonight

:06:54.:07:00.

to produce a little rain. Low cloud will feed in heading towards dawn.

:07:01.:07:08.

It will not be a cold night with a minimum temperature of 14 Cdlsius. A

:07:09.:07:15.

cloudy and misty start for some Right or sunny intervals. The cloud

:07:16.:07:23.

will improve stubborn in pl`ces We're we do get some sunshine

:07:24.:07:28.

temperatures could peak at 21 Celsius. Improving on Saturday with

:07:29.:07:30.

the weather front cleaving `way temperatures continue to be above

:07:31.:07:33.

average. Now the national outlook.

:07:34.:07:42.

Good evening. Still a hint of summer in the air, temperatures up to 3 or

:07:43.:07:49.

24 for today. Tomorrow, another dry day for many and skies will probably

:07:50.:07:52.

look like this picture behind me. I will show you what the satellite

:07:53.:07:55.

picture looked like today. The reason why I'm showing you this

:07:56.:07:59.

tomorrow the cloud cover will look
