News: Disabled passengers left at gate


A PROBE has been launched at Edinburgh Airport after six disabled people were left stranded at the terminal as their flight took off without them.

The passengers, many of whom were elderly, said they had been told only to board the easyJet flight to Belfast once able-bodied travellers had taken their seats but were "gobsmacked" when the queue disappeared and an airline rep came up to tell them the flight had gone.

Airport chiefs have expressed "disappointment" at the blunder and vowed a "full and urgent investigation" into the incident.
