London (CNN) — Police arrested two men Friday on suspicion of endangering an aircraft after a flight from Pakistan to the United Kingdom was diverted to Stansted Airport, outside of London.

A UK fighter jet was scrambled to escort the Pakistan International Airlines flight as it was diverted from northwestern England’s Manchester Airport to Stansted.

Essex Police, which cover the area near Stansted airport, said officers had arrested the men and removed them from the plane, which had 297 passengers aboard.

An unruly passenger prompted the plane’s diversion, a top official with the airline said.

“The passenger was simply causing a disturbance on the plane and threatening passengers and staff. This is a lesson to angry passengers,” the official said.
