Runway leak

Here’s the text to the listening from yesterday.


A flight with 213 people on board was descending into its destination when the crew began to suspect that they had a fuel leak. They reported it to ATC but continued their approach as normal. After landing ATC confirmed a liquid, most likely fuel, was leaking from engine no.1. The pilots shut down the engine and continued to taxi to the apron. The passengers disembarked and mechanics investigated the problem. The runway had to be cleaned before other flights could land.
