Plane safe after fuel tank leaks.
Considerable amounts of fuel lay on the runway at Gatwick Airport after the Thomas Cook Boeing 757 touched down following a flight from Bodrum in Turkey, the Air Accidents Investigation Branch report said.
The captain estimated that about 2,860lb (1,300kg) of fuel had leaked from the left engine - an RB211 Rolls-Royce engine.
The airfield was closed to all movements after the incident in the early hours of June 12 last year.
