BA flight search clear after 'threat' report

A canine unit has found nothing suspicious during a sweep of a London-to-Newark flight after authorities received an unspecified threat.

The British Airways flight carrying 206 passengers and 13 crew members arrived on Thursday afternoon at Newark Liberty International Airport in the US.

A Port Authority of New York and New Jersey police spokesman said the crew is off the plane and passengers' bags are being rescreened.

The plane was moved to a remote area of the airport after it landed.
