Not a particularly rare occurrence, pilots are trained for such matters. Could have shut down the engine due to a warning light or many other things. Losing an engine doesn't mean the engine has fallen off :P (well, usually)

But either way, the Manchester is tech tonight and cancelled.

To lose one engine may be regarded as misfortune, to lose two looks like carelessness

"If we lose the other one we're going to be up here all day, to be sure."

And a rather fast descent.

I hope the passengers got a better hotel provided than I did when the same aircraft broke down in Manchester on Tuesday evening, stuck out in a shabby hotel near Warrington. The ground handling agents, Menzies, were abysmal in both attitude and abilty to organise anything.

If an engine fell off there would have been a lot more media coverage.

Not on the same plane at least.

Don't worry folks, I've found it. At least my back yard looks like something has hit it from a great height!
