The easyJet flight U28507 is making its way back to UK after being unable to land in Iceland due to fog. It is now being diverted to Glasgow in Scotland. The flight issued the 7700 squawk while it travelled 360,000 ft in the air as it made its way to Iceland’s capital Reykjavík.

The 7700 code indicates a “general emergency”. 

The Airbus A319-111 made off from Gatwick Airport at 6.05am BST and is scheduled to arrive in Iceland at 8.10am GMT. 

A flight route shown on global flight tracking service Flightradar24 shows that the plane turned around before heading towards Glasgow.
