An investigation is under way after a fire engine overturned at Jersey Airport on Thursday.

Three people were hurt in the accident which happened at about 0615 BST.

The vehicle rolled on to its roof and the three occupants were taken to hospital but none is thought to be seriously injured.

The head of fire and rescue at the airport, Andy Munns, said the fire crew was carrying out a routine training exercise when the accident occurred.

He said: "The exercise takes place most mornings during quiet periods of flying.

"The crew were doing some driver training on the taxi way and runway and the appliance overturned at the end of the taxi way."

The accident delayed the morning's early departures.
