A flight heading to Glasgow was forced to turn around and head back due to a fault. 

The KLM service left Amsterdam at 7.50pm on Monday evening and headed over the North Sea.

Satellite imagery from FlightRadar24 shows the aircraft never made it to its final destination, turning around near Hull in England before heading back and landing in Amsterdam.
