A PLANE flying from Manchester to Malaga was forced to return to its point of origin and make an emergency landing. The Jet2.com aircraft developed a fault, believed to be a problem with its hydraulics, Manchester Evening News reported.
Air traffic controllers gave priority permission for it to land, although the Boeing 757 had to circle in the air for a while to burn of fuel before it could land.
A fleet of fire engines were waiting on the ground, but the plane touched down safely. Checks were carried out before it could take off. Passengers arrived at Malaga airport, five hours later than originally planned.
