An emergency landing has taken place at Cork Airport.

Aer Lingus Regional flight EI-3701 was en-route to Cork from Birmingham when the captain called for assistance.

It is reported that cockpit filled with smoke - however Cork Airport says it is not yet in a position to confirm this.

Management at the facility activated its full emergency plan.

One unit from Carrigaline fire brigade and five from Cork City were also scrambled.

All 59 passengers and four crew landed safely just after 10.00am.
