A Flybe aircraft was forced to make an emergency landing in Belfast this evening over fire concerns.
The plane, en route from Southampton to Belfast and carrying 69 passengers and 4 crew on board, declared an emergency after a smoke alarm went off in the rear baggage hold.
The flying crew took appropriate action and requested emergency landing procedures at Belfast City Airport. Ten fire engines were put on standby as a precaution.
The aircraft landed safely and the passengers were disembarked in an orderly fashion.
No sign of smoke was found upon inspection, but authorities said the incident will be fully investigated.
