DELAYS: Two flights landed late because of the boar

A WILD boar broke through a fence into Madrid’s international Barajas airport causing brief delays on Friday evening.

The animal triggered security alarms after creating a hole in the fence and walking around just 100 metres from the nearest runway.

Cameras showed the boar turn around and go back through the fence, with two flights delayed landing as a result.

A plane from London was delayed by 20 minutes, while a flight from A Coruna was delayed by 10 minutes.

According to El Pais, the captain aboard the inbound flight from London told passengers an animal had ‘surprisingly’ forced him to abort the landing.
