Footage shows military jet escorting passenger plane to airport

Military jets have escorted a passenger plane to Manchester Airport after reports of a possible device on board.

The Qatar Airways plane was escorted in to land by the Royal Air Force following information received by the pilot.

Greater Manchester Police said officers were treating it as a "full emergency" as they did not know "how genuine this threat is".
