A Dublin-bound plane was forced to make an emergency landing in London this evening due to an issue with the plane’s engine.

The problem arose shortly after CityJet flight WZ123 left London City Airport for Dublin at 5.30pm.

The pilot was forced to make an emergency landing at Stanstead airport.

A source told independent.ie this evening: "There was a loud bang and the wings started shaking.”

A CityJet spokesperson confirmed: “There was an issue with an engine after take-off.”

“A replacement aircraft will take the passengers back to Dublin.”
