An EasyJet flight heading to the UK from Poland has been diverted to the Czech Republic after a report of a ‘possible bomb’ on board.
Flight EZY6276 from Krakow to Bristol was an hour into its two-and-a-half-hour flight when it landed at Prague’s Vaclav Havel Airport at 10.50pm on Sunday.
Prague Airport tweeted: ‘There was reported a possible bomb on board an aircraft.
Czech police said ‘pyrotechnicians’ had been sent to the scene in order to investigate the report.
It is thought passengers were taken off the plane while a search was carried out by police investigators.
Prague Airport officials later added that ‘no dangerous object was found on the plane after the pyrotechnic inspection.’
