An Aer Lingus plane was forced to return to Dublin Airport this morning after experiencing a technical problem.

Around 120 passengers were on board the plane to Heathrow when it got into difficulty 25 minutes into the flight.

It made a normal landing at Dublin, where engineers subsequently discovered a hydraulics problem.

The passengers are now being accommodated on other flights to London.
