GARDAÍ WERE CALLED yesterday to two separate incidents in Dublin and Shannon airports after disturbances on board flights.

In Shannon, a man in his 20s was arrested following a public order incident on a flight from Oslo to Tenerife.

The plane made an emergency landing in the airport following a disturbance and gardaí removed the man from the aircraft at around 12.30pm.

At 6.35pm gardaí were also called to an incident at Dublin Airport. A male passenger in his 20s was removed from a plane and detained by gardaí under the Mental Health Act.

Both flights continued their journeys, and no one was injured in either incident.
