BBC has another video HERE of an aircraft trying to land at Birmingham. They state it eventually diverts to Gatwick.

That was a damn good landing, in my view. I had to make landings similar to that to get my license in small airplanes. It's a very scary business. In this case it probably looked a little worse than it was. That's because this Airbus was a heavy and had lots of inertia and weight behind it. That's an advantage in this case as the pilot had a lot more control, really, than a pilot of something like a Cessna would have in the same air conditions. That pilot fought the airplane all the way to the ground, which was perfect procedure. I'd fly with him any day.
