A PLANE has been spotted billowing smoke on the runway at Manchester Airport in front of stunned holidaymakers.

Fire crews raced to the scene at around 4.30pm shortly after the Tui flight landed.

Eye witnesses said fire engines then began spraying down the right engine of the aircraft after it reportedly overheated.

One eyewitness told MailOnline: "Suddenly just a load of fire engines appeared and started spraying it down with water while we were having a drink at the bar."
