A Ryanair flight has been forced to land in Paris after an emergency was declared mid-air.

Flight FR1633 was making its way from Limoges in southwest France to East Midlands airport in the UK but was diverted to Paris Beauvais where it landed safely.

A spokesman for Ryanair said: "This flight from Limoges to East Midlands (27 Sept) diverted to Paris Beauvais after a customer became ill on board. The aircraft landed normally and the customer was met by medical personnel, and disembarked for further treatment.

"The aircraft is due to depart for East Midlands shortly. Ryanair sincerely apologised to affected customers for any inconvenience caused.”
