Flybe crew criticised

The pilots and crew on a Flybe flight from Newquay has been heavily critcised for how they reacted to an emergency alarm last summer. One of the airline's planes made an emergency landing at Edinburgh airport after a smoke warning light came on.

An air accident investigation says passengers tried to get out but there weren't enough emergency slides or steps. They were also slowed by taking bags and coats. The report accepts that the airline has taken action to prevent similar incidents.
