Stansted Jet: Britons Charged Over Diversion

Two men have been charged with endangering an aircraft after a passenger jet from Pakistan to Manchester was diverted mid-flight.

Taxi driver Tayyab Subhani, 30, and restaurant worker Mohammed Safdar, 41, both from Nelson in Lancashire , will appear at Chelmsford Magistrates Court on Monday.

They were detained on Friday after a Pakistan International Airlines flight was diverted to Stansted Airport in Essex, where it landed at 2.15pm.
