London runway closed after plane's tires burst

The runway at London's City Airport was closed Tuesday after a plane's tires burst on landing, airport officials said. No injuries were reported. In a statement, the airport said a flight from Paris' Orly airport operated by Air France subsidiary CityJet burst its tires as it landed at about 8:35 a.m. The plane, which was carrying 55 passengers, did not leave the runway. The runway at the airport, which mostly handles short-haul commuter flights to Europe, was closed until further notice.
