An American Airlines flight from London to Philadelphia landed in Ireland after cleaning chemicals leaked in the aircraft cabin on Monday.

An air traffic controller asks, "Was there a known spillage onboard or is it just an assumption based on the smell?"

The pilot responds: "We’ve actually recovered the container for the substance. It is a cleaning product that was used at London Heathrow ... It was spilled and for some reason the container itself was left behind in the aircraft in one of the lavatories and it continues to seep into carpeting and produce what I’m told is not a toxic substance."
