    Jet 2 flight from Manchester to Greece forced to U-turn due to mid-air fault

    A plane full of holidaymakers was forced to return to Manchester this morning after a fault was spotted on the jet.

    Passengers were on their way to Greece with Jet 2 and left the UK at around 6am, only to arrive back at the same airport just a few hours earlier.

    The airplane was due to land in Kalamata at 11.55am local time (9.55am UK time).

    However the flight turned around over France and headed back to Manchester Airport.

    Flight tracking app Flight Radar had said the status of the Boeing 737-8MG was 'diverted'.
