RAF Typhoons were launched on Tuesday after two Russian aircraft were seen flying close to UK airspace.

The Ministry of Defence said Typhoons from RAF Lossiemouth were deployed "after Russian aircraft were identified flying close to UK airspace".

The Russian planes later turned around, flying back north past Norway.
