Plane makes emergency landing after BOMB THREAT

A passenger jet has had to make an emergency landing after a bomb threat.

The plane was bound for Egypt with 161 passengers on board.

Police spokeswoman Viktoria Csiszer-Kovacs said: ‘The plane landed in Burgas at 5.48am (3.48am GMT) after a request for flight number LLP8015 travelling from Warsaw to Hurghada to make an emergency landing, due to a report of the presence of explosives on board.’

‘A passenger who alerted crew about a possible bomb admitted on questioning to having consumed alcohol.’

Police are to give more information later on.

According to website Flightradar24, flight DE490, an Airbus A321 jet, flying from Schoenefeld airport in Berlin to Hurghada turned back to Budapest from Serbian airspace.

Hurghada is a popular holiday destination for tourists with a  warm climate and the Red Sea.

The bomb scare is just weeks after the Sharm El-Sheik en route to Moscow was blown up by a bomb.
