A sonic boom has been heard over London and Cambridge after two RAF jets were scrambled to intercept a private plane.
The aircraft was travelling from Germany and had lost communication with air traffic controllers.
It was diverted to Stansted Airport by the RAF jets.
Several people reported hearing a “massively loud bang” in London, Cambridge and other areas in the South East.
Posting on Twitter, Alistair Broomhead said: “Just heard a loud boom in E12, windows rattled, sounded like an explosion, anyone else in London hear anything? Know what’s going on?”
