@FlightEmergency on X mentioned that the reason for the emergency was medical-related.

At this stage, details surrounding the specifics are unclear, and typically are, unless something fatal has happened.

This means that Ryanair FR6267 from Barcelona will continue on to Edinburgh from Manchester in due course.

All eyes will be on when the aircraft departs. A safe landing into EDI is expected.
