Cessna 172M and Skyhawk Diamond DA 42 Twin Star, G-BTMR and G-PETS

Summary:

In the early stages of an aircraft’s landing roll on Runway 06, the pilot observed another aircraft enter the grass runway and taxi along it in the same direction. The pilot of the landing aircraft applied maximum braking and the other aircraft vacated the runway on to a parallel taxiway. The crew in the taxiing aircraft were unaware of the landing aircraft until it drew level with them, still on the runway. The taxiing aircraft had landed on the reciprocal Runway 24 earlier in the day and the crew were taxiing for a departure from the same runway. They were also unaware that they were not receiving or transmitting radio calls until they checked their headset connections and recycled the radio.
