An Emirates plane, which was delayed from taking off from London to Dubai on Friday night because of a suspected bomb threat, was finally allowed to take off on Saturday after police confirmed that there was nothing suspicious on board.
More than 330 passengers were made to evacuate the plane after three men made threats about a bomb. A Scotland Yard spokesman said that a “verbal threat was made to staff.” The men, all British nationals aged 58, 48 and 36, were arrested at the Heathrow Airport on Friday night and are still being held in custody.
