An Aer Lingus plane bound for the UK has declared a state of emergency over the Irish Sea.
Flight EI3326 departed Dublin at 3:15pm and was bound for Manchester this afternoon, but minutes into the flight an emergency was declared after a windscreen shattered, according to Radar Box, a flight tracking service.
The flight tracker confirmed the Airbus was on its way back to Dublin Airport, having made it just off the Howth coast.
Pilots transmitted code 7700, indicating a general emergency – which was then confirmed as a “badly cracked right windshield”.
Aer Lingus has been contacted by the Mirror for comment.
