Two men charged for “endangering aircraft”

Fighter jets accompany flight from Lahore to Stansted

Details are still sketchy, but police in the UK have charged two men with endangering an aircraft after a Pakistan International Airlines flight from Lahore to Manchester was diverted to London Stansted.
Royal Air Force Typhoon fighter jets were scrambled to accompany the Boeing 777 shortly before it was due to land, guiding it back out over the North Sea and south to Stansted.
On the ground, the plane was directed to an isolated stand and passengers were told to leave their possessions on board before leaving. The two men, named as Tayyab Subhani and Mohammed Safdar, both resident in Lancashire in the UK, were arrested by armed police and will appear in court today.
