Holiday jet diverted to Canada on flight back to Manchester after passenger falls ill

A holiday jet flying back to Manchester from Jamaica has been diverted - to a remote airport in the far north of Canada.

Thomas Cook flight TCX109 had to take the diversion after a passenger fell ill onboard.

It was due to arrive this morning - but may now be 24 hours late.

The flight had already been delayed nearly four hours from taking off at Montego Bay in Jamaica due to an electrical fault.

It eventually set off last night - and was due to touch down at Manchester Airport at 6.45am today.

But when a passenger became ill it diverted to the remote Gander Airport in Labrador.
