A FLIGHT BOUND for Shannon Airport was diverted to Berlin overnight, following a bomb hoax.

Flight FR3326 — which took off from Krakow in Poland shortly before 10pm last night — was diverted to Berlin Schönefeld.

A number of sources said there had been a bomb scare on board.

In a statement, Ryanair spokesman Robin Kiely confirmed there had been a “hoax security alert”.

“Customers disembarked while the aircraft was inspected by police, who detained one individual, before the aircraft was cleared to depart for Shannon.

“Ryanair sincerely apologised to all customers affected by this delay to their journey, however the safety of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority.
