Jet2An aircraft of Jet2 had to make an emergency landing at Manchester Airport and was met by police and fire engines this evening.


The Dalaman-bound flight had taken off from Newcastle when it hit technical trouble.

The M.E.N has asked for how long passengers were delayed and how they made their onward journey.
