A JET2 flight from Scotland was forced to make an emergency landing just minutes after take-off.
The aircraft was travelling from Edinburgh to Palma De Mallorca, Spain, this morning when the alarm was raised.
Flight LS717 departed from the capital at 6:42am but later declared an emergency at 7:04am.
The aircraft was forced to divert to Manchester Airport where it landed safely.
A Jet2 spokesperson said the incident was of a medical nature.
They added: “Flight LS717 from Edinburgh to Palma diverted to Manchester Airport this morning (Wednesday 11th October), due to a customer requiring medical attention.”
Last month, we told how another Jet2 flight from Scotland was forced to make an emergency landing after it nearly ran out of fuel.
The aircraft had almost 200 people on board when the dramatic incident unfolded.
