A Delta Air Lines flight from the US to Nigeria was diverted to Bermuda last night after an on-board medical crisis.

Delta flight 54 from Atlanta, Georgia, to Lagos landed in Bermuda at about 11.30pm on Saturday night, about five hours after take-off.

The aircraft was met by emergency services and an ambulance and a fire truck were seen at the airport.

A spokeswoman for airport operators Skyport confirmed that the flight had touched down in Bermuda to offload an ill passenger.

The plane and its 206 passengers left the island just after midnight.
