Plane makes emergency landing at Shannon after fire alarm in cargo hold
There are no reports of injuries.

A BOEING 787-8 Dreamliner was forced to make an emergency landing at Shannon Airport this afternoon after a fire alarm went off in the cargo hold.

The AeroMexico flight from Mexico City to Paris Charles De Gaulle was forced to make the landing after the alarm sounded some 300 miles from the Irish coast.

The plane landed safely at Shannon, where it was met by emergency service vehicles and escorted to the gate.

There are no reports of any injuries and the situation is being assessed.

The Dreamliner has had a number of high-profile problems, including a string of fires in battery packs.
