Two men have been arrested on suspicion of endangerment of an aircraft after RAF Typhoon jets were scrambled to escort a passenger plane over the UK.

Police boarded Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight PK709, originally en route to Manchester from Lahore, after it was diverted to Stansted.

Supt Darrin Tomkins, of Essex Police, said officers were investigating a "criminal offence" and had not found any "suspicious items".
