BA steward on 'bomb threat' charge

A British Airways flight steward has been charged with making a mid-air bomb threat.

Mathew Davis, 22, was on the Tokyo to London flight with 150 passengers on board when he allegedly scrawled a message on a toilet door that caused the scare.

Davis was arrested when the Boeing 777 safely touched down at Heathrow Airport on Sunday after its 7,000-mile journey.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said Davis, from Crawley in West Sussex, was charged on Monday with communicating a bomb threat.

He is due to appear at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on February 28.

Davis has been suspended from his job by the airline.
