An Easyjet flight from London Gatwick to Minorca was escorted by a fighter jet, following a bomb threat.
According to the Spanish police, the precaution was taken after a British 18-year-old made a fake threat on social media.
The culprit – who yesterday was travelling alongside five other friends – remains in Minorca under police custody while awaiting a court hearing.
Footage of the incident shows the Spanish fighter jet signalling the low-cost carrier’s pilot to follow it, while concerned passengers are heard wondering what is taking place.
The incident caused disruption out to flights out of Minorca.
