It seems to have squawked 7700 somewhere around west of Wolverhampton and diverted to Man. It then departed Man at 01:40 and completed its journey to Newcastle. Possibly poorly passenger?

Reportedly so.

What the ambulance-chasers fail to realise (or maybe they do?) is that, according to the stats, around 90% of all 7700 squawks/diversions are due to a passenger medical emergency.

Move along now, nothing to see here.
