A RyanAir spokesman told MailOnline: ‘This flight from Manchester to Lanzarote (13th Oct) diverted to Liverpool airport following a minor bird strike. 

‘The aircraft landed normally, and customers were transferred to a replacement aircraft which departed to Lanzarote following a short delay of approximately one hour. 

‘Ryanair sincerely apologised to all affected customers.’
