A British Airways flight destined for America was forced to make an emergency landing in Glasgow after pilots noticed a ‘technical issue’.
The London to Seattle service was spotted circling over the Western Isles late on Sunday afternoon before making a mid-air u-turn.
The Boeing 787 aircraft landed at the Scots travel hub and was checked over by engineers after a ‘minor’ issue was discovered by crew onboard.
The flight departed again at 7.05pm and has since safely landed in Seattle.
A spokesperson for British Airways confirmed the incident had taken place.
They said: “Safety is always our priority and our experienced pilots diverted our flight into Glasgow after they became aware of an indication of a minor technical issue.
“Our engineers are currently investigating while our cabin crew look after our customers. We hope to continue the flight shortly.”
