Emergency landing at Sevilla airport

A Barcelona-bound flight was forced to make an emergency landing at Sevilla airport after a bird hit one of its engines.

Passengers must have feared they had fallen victim to the flight-grounding volcanic ash when the Vueling plane was struck during its takeoff from Sevilla.

The plane had to make a quick turn around for a safe emergency landing at the San Pablo airport.

There were no injuries and passengers are being placed on other flights.
