A plane has had to make an emergency landing in Cornwall because a passenger became ill.

The flight from Edinburgh to Tenerife diverted to Newquay because the passenger needed urgent medical attention.

An easyJet spokesperson said: "easyJet can confirm that flight EZY6949 from Edinburgh to Tenerife on Wednesday 6th June diverted to Newquay due to a passenger onboard requiring urgent medical assistance.

"Paramedics met the aircraft on arrival in Newquay where the passenger was taken to hospital and the flight continued to Tenerife.
