A number of flights due to arrive at Glasgow Airport were forced to divert elsewhere on Sunday due to high winds as Storm Isha batters Scotland.

Met Office yellow warnings have been in place from midday – with the more severe high-impact amber warnings for wind in place until Monday morning.

A total of 10 flights that were scheduled to land at Glasgow Airport diverted to airports such as London Stansted, Manchester, Newcastle, Liverpool and Dublin on Sunday.

Among them were Jet2 flight LS156 from Tenerife, which diverted to London Stansted, and EasyJet flight EZY869 from London Gatwick, which diverted to Glasgow Prestwick.
