Passengers have witnessed police officers board their EasyJet plane on the runway due to what was being referred to a “safety-related” problem

The security threat, which seems to be concerned with the plane’s aviation, has now been revealed to be a hoax.

Some time before mid-day, flights on Gatwick Airport witnessed delays just as police was arriving at the tarmac.

Later, it was claimed that Polish Police had received a general threat about EasyJet.

This led to police boarding the EZY8512 plane, which had arrived from Poland, to check for any signs of danger in its aircraft.

A passenger released a video on Twitter showing the officers at the front of the plane.
