Norwegian flight 7045 was en route from London Gatwick to Fort Lauderdale in Florida when it made a u-turn over the Atlantic at around 5.00pm

The crew had requested that authorities meet the aircraft once it landed shortly after 6 o’clock.

A 28-year-old man was removed from the plane and has been taken to Shannon garda station for questioning.

The man is being questioning for being intoxicated and for allegedly engaging in threatening behaviour.

He is expected to appear in court in the morning.
