Stansted alert update

A security scare which saw an easyJet aircraft make an unscheduled landing at Stansted Airport appears to have been a false alarm.

The airline says it received information from the British authorities about a passenger aboard the flight from Hamburg to Luton which caused it to be diverted.

It would appear that when Essex Police boarded and searched the aircraft the person wasn't there.

The airline says the Airbus involved in the alert will take on fuel at Stansted before flying on to Luton.
