EasyJet flight from Gatwick to Barcelona lands in Paris after declaring a mid-air emergency


An EasyJet flight that departed from London Gatwick has been forced into an emergency landing mid-flight today.

The U28569 flight, bound for Barcelona, departed the London terminal around 30 minutes later than expected before being forced into a mid-air divert in France.

At this stage it is unclear why the plane was forced to divert.

Live data tracking from FlightRadar24 showed the moment the plane started to rapidly descend above Loches, Northern France.
