A Flybe flight from Scotland to Belfast City Airport has landed safely after suffering a "minor technical fault" while in the air.

The flight was coming from Inverness Airport and the captain was forced to "follow the necessary procedures" after experiencing difficulties when the aircraft was on its approach to Belfast.

The airport placed emergency vehicles on standby as precautionary measure. The flight then landed safely and all 72 passengers disembarked as normal.

A spokesperson for Flybe apologised for any inconvenience caused to passengers.

"The safety of passengers and crew is the airline's number one priority and Flybe apologises for any inconvenience experienced," the spokesperson said.
