Nearly 30 migrants fled a plane at Barcelona’s El Prat airport after a woman on board forced it to crash land by pretending to go into labour.

The drama occurred around 4:30 am this morning after the plane made its unscheduled stop en route from the Moroccan city of Casablanca to Istanbul in Turkey.

Twenty-seven passengers escaped from the plane as she was being led away.

At last count, 14 had been located and arrested, including the unnamed woman who claimed her waters had ruptured after a doctor examined her and found no evidence she was pregnant.
