Some Northern Ireland supporters returning from yesterday evening’s Euro 2022 clash with Austria were left stranded at Southampton Airport this morning.

Fans who travelled to support the women’s international team in their second group match were unable to fly back after Eastern Airways told them not enough seats were available on their plane home.
