"I think what this episode demonstrates is that we do have the fast jets, the pilots, the systems in place to protect the United Kingdom," the Prime Minister said during an event at Felixstowe in Suffolk.

"I suspect what's happening here is that the Russians are trying to make some sort of a point and I don't think we should dignify it with too much of a response."
