The Air Southwest flight from Newquay in Cornwall to Glasgow, which had 24 passengers and three crew members on board, was diverted to Dublin after the fault was discovered.

A spokesman said: "As a precaution, the crew decided to divert to the nearest airport en route, which was Dublin."

The Bombardier Dash 8 left Cornwall at 5pm on Monday and was due in Scotland at 6.45pm. The passengers boarded a replacement aircraft at Dublin and arrived in Glasgow at 10.50pm.
