In what has turned into an offshoot of the alleged sexual misconduct by Aziz Ansari, veteran journalist Ashleigh Banfield responded on air to criticism sent in an email from the woman who wrote the original story. Katie Way, a writer for the digital outlet Babe, wrote the email declining to be on Ms Banfield's programme "Crime and Justice" and also attacked her appearance, age, and career in response to Ms Banfield's original report which criticised Ansari's accuser. In the original story a woman - only known under the pseudonym "Grace" - went on a date with Ansari and detailed what "Grace" felt was behaviour that made her uncomfortable.

Passenger plane lifted away from cliff edge after Turkey runway incident

A passenger plane that skidded off a Turkish airport runway has been lifted away from its precarious position on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Black Sea. Two enormous cranes were used to hoist the Pegasus Airlines plane which ran into trouble moments after landing at Trabzon Airport on Turkey’s northeast coastline on 13 January. The 162 passengers on board the Boeing 737-800 miraculously escaped without any serious injuries after the out-of-control plane suddenly veered off an icy runway and hurtled down the side of the cliff.

The pilot and co-pilot, who both passed breathalyser tests after an investigation into the incident was launched, reported a sudden ‘engine surge’ after landing.

Terrified passenger Fatma Gördü told Turkish media the plane began suddenly shaking on the runway.

There was panic. People shouting, screaming,” she said. Pegasus Airlines said in a statement that Flight PC 8622 “had a runway excursion incident during landing”. Another passenger, Yüksel Gördü, said it was “a miracle” that they survived the ordeal.
