According to FR24, the last flight to take off from EGPH was U2810 at 1754z to LGW.
Next was to be U26995 to MAD, operated by G-EZUO.

She seemed to have taxied but stopped short of the RWY. Either something (major) made the RWY u/s or G-EZUO went off the pavement and is stuck there for a while, closing the AD till tomorrow morning.

GLA is a good alternate, about 1-hour drive from EDI.
