The report states that it was flight LS177 and that 4 pax were injured in the evacuation following reports of smoke in the cabin prior to takeoff.
It's not been a great 24 hours for LS after yesterday's LS809 MAN-AGP diverted to LBA shortly after take-off - I don't know what the issue was there because I only followed it on flightradar24 but the flight eventually continued from LBA on a different a/c

We had a Jet2 last Saturday make an emergency landing here at FAO. I think it was the TFS MAN flight. It had come from Tenerife for sure. They even closed the road at the end of the runway. Flap problem I believe.

BBC reporting "Alison Pedley, from Stourport on Severn, said stewards "yelled" at passengers "to leave all bags and just jump". Watching the video however, I see a woman in blue/turquoise top with a bag or coat! I wonder how many others still stopped to pick up their belongings.
.....Yelled at them. How rude. Could they not say 'please'?
Also interesting to see the lights in the chute - at the bottom. Didn't know they had them.

Quoting Vanguard (Reply 9): .....Yelled at them. How rude. Could they not say 'please'?
I do hope you're joking. There are times for politeness and evacuating a smoke-filled aircraft isn't one of them. If it's correct that people were collecting belongings the cabin crew obviously weren't yelling loudly enough.
