Two suspects have been arrested for allegedly making threats to endanger a Ryanair flight after the pilot was forced to make an emergency landing at London Stansted Airport after an ‘explosives on board’ note was found in the plane toilet.

According to reports, the plane, which was on its way to Dublin, in Ireland, from Krakow, Poland, was diverted after the note was found.

Upon the alert, two RAF jets were sent to help out the FR1902 flight after the captain put out a distress call while flying over the North Sea. It was then diverted to Stansted Airport around 6.40pm, where emergency services and police were on standby.

According to Essex Police, the two men are aged 47 and 26, and they have been arrested.

A Ryanair spokeswoman confirmed the incident. She said: ‘A Ryanair flight from Krakow to Dublin this evening discovered a note in one of the toilets. The note claimed that there were explosives on board.

‘The captain followed procedure by alerting the UK authorities and diverted to the nearest airport (Stansted). There, the plane landed normally but was taxied to a remote stand where passengers disembarked safely.

‘The aircraft and passengers are being checked by the UK police. The police will decide when they may travel onwards to Dublin on a spare aircraft.

‘Ryanair apologises sincerely for the delay and inconvenience caused to those affected by this diversion.’
