A woman passenger has been arrested after a flight from London to Washington was diverted to Boston because of an on-board disturbance.
Transport officials said the 59-year-old woman was held in connection with a confrontation with the flight crew.

She was carrying hand cream - a banned item - and matches on board the United Airlines flight.

It sounds like a stand-up comedian's joke: A nervous flier boards a plane with hand cream and a box of matches...

Fighter jets scrambled to escort the plane into Boston, and the media scrambled to keep up with events.

Fighter jets scrambled for a bottle of cream!!

So now we've reached a stage where we get into a Red Alert even if my poodle sneezes!!

And that's what the terrorists want! So aren't we playing into their hands and reacting exactly as they want us to do?
