Armed police storm Aer Lingus flight departing London Heathrow

Armed police were forced to board a Dublin-bound flight from Heathrow early Thursday, when two unauthorised passengers made their way onboard.

The staff of Aer Lingus were unable to disembark the men in question and were forced to call the police.

The flight was originally scheduled to depart from Heathrow at 19:45pm but was delayed until 22:20pm resulting in the Aer Lingus EI 177 flight arriving in Dublin nearly two and half hours late.

The filmer described the scenes unfolding as "chaos" as they were "currently grounded and awaiting security"
