A flight was forced to land in Bournemouth last night when a passenger was taken ill on board.
Ryanair flight FR2493 from Tenerife was due to land at Leeds Bradford Airport at around 10pm, but pilots declared a medical emergency and requested permission to divert to Bournemouth.
A Ryanair spokesperson said: “This flight (28 Nov) diverted to Bournemouth after a customer became ill on board. The crew called ahead to request medical assistance, the aircraft landed normally and the customer was met by medics upon arrival.”
The remaining passengers were taken by taxi to Leeds Bradford.
