'Suspect device' on Delta Airlines flight was a mobile phone, say reports

A passenger's mobile phone plugged into a shaving socket sparked a panic and an emergency landing at Dublin airport, says the Irish Times.

The pilot requested permission to make an emergency landing of the Delta Airlines flight 767-300 due to concerns about 'suspicious activity' in the cabin. It was also reported that a 'suspect device' had been found in the passenger toilet.

It is understood, however, that the 'suspicious device' turned out to be a mobile phone that had been plugged into a shaving outlet in the passenger toilet and left wrapped in its cable. The emergency has now been stood down and no arrests were made.
