Flight From Hong Kong Diverted in U.K.

A Virgin Atlantic plane heading from Hong Kong to London was diverted to an airport north of London on Thursday after receiving a bomb threat, police said. Flight VF201, carrying 214 passengers and 18 crew members, was diverted to Stansted after a bomb threat was made by phone. Essex Police Chief Superintendent Sue Harrison said officers established that the call was a hoax before the plane was searched but questioned passengers individually. “Information we received has been thoroughly investigated. We are now satisfied it is a hoax,” she said. No explosives were found aboard the plane, police said. The plane landed at 5:23 a.m. Everyone on board was evacuated safely and taken to a secure area at the airport, Harrison said.Full Story
