An Air New Zealand-owned aircraft made an emergency landing at the South Island town of Blenheim on Thursday after its nose wheel failed, the airline said.

The Q300 aircraft, operated by Air NZ subsidiary Air Nelson, had 49 passengers and crew on board when it landed at 5.05pm (0405GMT), the airline said.

It said there were no injuries and the aircraft, which had been diverted on a flight from Auckland to Nelson due to bad weather, was being inspected by engineers.
