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.

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