Passenger photographs arrested man on Qatar Airways plane

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 (RAF) following information received by the pilot.

A man on the Doha to Manchester plane has been arrested on suspicion of making a hoax bomb threat.

Passenger Matthew Cox took a photo of the arrest and told BBC News the man had appeared "relatively non-descript".
