British Airways steward on 'bomb threat' charge

A British Airways flight steward has been charged with making a mid-air bomb threat.

Matthew Davis, 22, was on the Tokyo to London flight where it is alleged he scrawled a message on a toilet door that caused a scare.

Mr Davis was arrested as the Boeing 777 safely touched down at Heathrow Airport on Sunday after a 6,000-mile journey.

Mr Davis, from Crawley, West Sussex, was charged on Monday with communicating a bomb threat.

He is due to appear at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on 28 February.

About 150 passengers were onboard the flight.
