Passengers flying to and from Manchester are likely to face delays after an incident at the UK airport.

A fighter jet escorted a passenger plane into Manchester Airport earlier this afternoon.

The plane is reported to be Qatar Airways flight QR023 from Doha.

There have been knock-on effects for Manchester Airport, which shut for a time, with no aeroplanes landing or taking off.

The airport is now open again but suffering from a backlog of flights.

Flybe flights are scheduled to arrive at Ronaldsway from Manchester at 2.50pm, 5.40pm and 9.05pm.

Flybe flights are scheduled to leave the Isle of Man for Manchester at 3.15pm and 6.50pm.
