An "unusual odour" forced a plane to make an emergency landing at Aberdeen Airport.

Eastern Airways flight EZE502 was greeted by waiting emergency crews upon landing at the airport in Scotland.

No passengers were on the plane, which had three crew members on board at the time. The plane - a Saab 2000 model - made a safe landing.

The flight had been travelling from Scatsta in the Shetland Islands, when the unusual smell was detected.

An investigation has been launched by Eastern Airways, which operates out of Humberside Airport in Kirmington, North Lincolnshire.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "We were made aware of an emergency landing at the airport and our officers attended as a precaution."
