Bomb hoax at Manchester airport grounds flight to Morocco

Bomb hoax at Manchester airport grounds flight to Morocco

Greater Manchester Police say officers were called at about 3.30pm after reports a passenger said there was bomb in his bag. They then arrested two men, aged 45 and 46, on suspicion of making the bomb hoax.

EasyJet say passengers on its 3.35pm flight to Marrakech were taken off the aircraft at Manchester airport to allow for “security checks”.

It comes after passenger made a hoax bomb threat as a JOKE – forcing terrified pilots to make an emergency landing.

The flight from Warsaw to Hurghada in Egpyt made an unscheduled landing in Bulgaria after the threat. Bulgarian news broadcaster Nova TV claims a 64-year-old man made the threat.
