Two men have been charged with endangering an aircraft after a Pakistan International Airlines passenger jet was diverted mid-flight over London.
Armed police boarded the flight at Stansted airport after an RAF Typhoon jet was scrambled to escort the Boeing 777.
Taxi driver Tayyab Subhani, 30, and restaurant worker Mohammed Safdar, 41, both from Nelson in Lancashire, will appear in court tomorrow, Essex Police said.
