DUBLIN, IRELAND - The Ryanair flight made an emergency landing due to a note in one of the toilets claiming that there were explosives on board.
The flight destined for Dublin Airport had been forced to make an emergency landing at Stansted Airport at around 6:40 pm.
Flight FR1902 was headed to the capital from Krakow in Poland.
But the plane began descending over the UK at around 6:30 pm this evening after declaring an emergency over the North Sea.
After putting out a distress call, the flight was rerouted to the plane was picked up by two Royal Air Force fighter jets, a pair of Eurofighter Typhoons, as it came in.
"The captain followed procedure by alerting the UK authorities and diverted to the nearest airport (Stansted) where the plane landed normally, but was taxied to a remote stand where passengers disembarked safely,"
A Ryanair spokesperson said.
The aircraft and passengers are being checked by the UK police who will decide when they may travel onwards to Dublin on a spare aircraft. Passengers in Dublin waiting to depart to Krakow are being transferred to a spare aircraft to minimize any delay to their flight.
