An Aer Lingus flight that was on its way to Chicago was forced to make a dramatic u-turn shortly after departure.

Flight EI125 departed from Dublin Airport shortly after 2pm but at around 2:45pm, turned around and headed back to the capital. 

The aircraft appeared to circle around county Louth for a period of time before heading northwards and turning around.

A source told The Irish Sun that the aircraft had to return to Dublin because of a technical issue.
