A Ryanair plane with 177 people onboard was damaged when it was reversed into an airport barrier, a report has found.
It was being moved by a tug into a parking area at Stansted Airport on 30 April last year to wait for its take-off slot. Accident investigators said bad weather reduced visibility for ground crew, who failed to stop the aircraft before part of its tail hit a blast fence.
A report by the Air Accidents Investigation Branch said a cabin crew member called the flight deck to say she thought the back of the plane had hit something as it was being pushed back from the gate.
