Seems odd?

Why? The aircraft is probably broken with something that will ground if after it's first landing..... And the only avialable spare to continue the service is in MAN?

Guess so. Looks like a return to LGW initially, then perhaps as you say new information, need to get to MAN, hence the turn over the North Sea.

More likely there was a "spare" aircraft there and a full crew available on standby-so they could switch
passengers across with the minimum of delay.

If there is a stby aircraft and crew they have still not departed. Do they have airport stby crew or just home stby?

​​​Turns out they are being put in a hotel til 4.30am with a 7.30 am departure.

Now if they had the odd B73 and B75 stby aircraft at Manchester's with associated crew on airport stby like one of their competitions does

What with the 4 orbit holds at LHR, it is probably a shorter distance to go direct to MAN.

Or, the crew might be based at MAN.
