Add an anchor to Laravel redirect back

In a Laravel controller I have this redirect:

return redirect()->back();

Which returns me to my previous page (say http://domain/page). However, I want to make the page jump to a particular anchor (say #section). So ultimately this page should be opened: http://domain/page#section. How can I make this happen? I tried appending the anchor to the redirect but that doesn't work.

return Redirect::to(URL::previous() . "#whatever");

And remember to import it at the top:

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Redirect;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\URL;

I hope this works for you!
