An Air Canada flight from London's Heathrow Airport that was headed to Toronto's Pearson airport was diverted to Halifax due to an "unruly passenger."

The flight AC869 made a sharp turn toward Halifax as it was flying north of Prince Edward Island.

Air Canada stated the plane would only make a short stop at Halifax Stanfield International Airport, and confirmed it was due to what it is calling an "unruly passenger."

More to come.
