Student in court over bomb scare on Easyjet flight

Student in court over bomb scare on Easyjet flight  - A student from Rennes will appear before court today for anonymously alerting a bomb scare to police on an Easyjet flight from Lyon to Rennes on Friday 18th January. The 23-year-old student admitted, while in police custody, that he "did not want his parents, who had boarded the plane, to join him in Rennes,". As a result the plane was forced to turn around and the 159 passengers and crew had to be disembarked, waiting several hours before being able to board another plane from London. The young student who did not want to see his parents risks up to 5 years in prison and a 75,000 euros fine.
