ALMOST 200 travellers spent nearly four hours on a plane parked on the tarmac at Edinburgh airport last night after it developed a technical fault before take-off.

The Thomas Cook flight to Antalya in Turkey had been due to leave shortly after 6pm. Passengers complained of the “roasting heat” inside the plane and were still waiting to be put hotels at midnight.

Dave Findlay, 35, from East Lothian, said: “It was ridiculous. We got no information and I saw small children in real distress.” No-one from the travel company was available for comment.
