looking at a story from a few years ago, it seems the RAF have accompanied a flight to stanstead before, although allegedly the two passengers had threatened to blow the plane up

Slow down there Deeky, there hasn't been anywhere near enough speculation and baseless accusations to close this thread so soon.

I think you are about 200 comments premature in reaching that conclusion, deeky. Maybe best to delete it and post it again around midnight. :)

It's a good job they didn't shoot first ask questions later like the Americans probably would.

They'd probably miss the target altogether.

a disruptive passenger. Oh.

A spokesman for Essex Police said officers were at the scene but stressed that the incident was not being treated as a hijack or terrorist situation.

An Essex police spokesman said: "An aircraft was diverted to Stansted Airport at around 3pm this afternoon while over UK airspace en route to Heathrow Airport due to reports of a disruptive passenger on board.
"The plane is currently at the airport and officers are making enquiries. There is no disruption to the ongoing operation of Stansted Airport."
Essex Police later said the Airbus A330 had been diverted because a man wanted by the Metropolitan Police was on board.

Must have been a wanted man for terrorist links then.

Yep

It was for unpaid parking fines. That is why they sent up 2 jets at the cost of a couple of hundred thousand ;)

at first they said a disturbance on board, then it was a tip off about a wanted person, to divert a plane and scramble 2 fighter jets from Lincolnshire, what was he wanted for.

Once they arrest someone they dont release much information for fear of prejudicing a trial. You will have to wait until he is charged.

Essex Police said the diversion had been due to reports of a disruptive passenger and was "not believed to be a hijack situation or terror matter".
In an unrelated matter, a passenger due to be arrested by police on arrival at Heathrow was held at Stansted instead.
The Met said the 52-year-old had been arrested on suspicion of committing fraud offences in the UK and was being transferred to a London police station.

I'm hazarding a guess here, I bet it wasn't an old shoplifting offence from woolies.

As the post above.

It seems they were after 1 for in flight offences & 1 was going to be arrested for fraud after the plane landed at heathrow.
