An Air Corps sea patrol plane has been forced to make an emergency landing on one engine.

The Casa aircraft landed safely at Kerry Airport, Farranfore, after warning lights in the cockpit went off.

A Defence Forces spokesman said all six crew were safe and well.

The aircraft had been on a routine maritime patrol off the west coast at the time of the alert.

The spokesman said one of the aircraft's two engines was shut down as a precaution and a controlled emergency landing carried out without incident.

An Air Corps technical team from Baldonnel is to examine the aircraft in Farranfore.
