At least 16 people are dead - including both pilots - after an Air India Express plane flying from Dubai to Calicut with 191 passengers onboard skidded on runway and crashed into a valley.  

The two pilots tried to land in heavy rain after already aborting their first attempt and circling over the airport at its destination for 20 minutes.

The plane overshot the runway and skidded into a 30ft-deep valley at Calicut airport, in the Indian State of Kerala, at around 7.45pm (2.45pm GMT) today.
