UK plane lands at Athens after bomb threat
A British passenger plane has made an emergency landing in Athens following a bomb threat, officials say.
Greek fighter jets were scrambled to escort the Thomson Airways Boeing 757-200, which was on its way from Bristol to the popular resort of Sharm el-Sheikh in Egypt.
All 213 people on board the plane are said to be unharmed.
The BBC's Malcolm Brabant says the threat was received by an Egyptian news agency.
