Russian military planes flying close to UK airspace “caused disruption to civil aviation” yesterday, the Foreign Office said.

RAF Typhoons were scrambled to escort the Russian jets “throughout the time they were in the UK area of interest”, a spokeswoman said.

The incident was part of an “increasing pattern of out-of-area operations by Russian aircraft”, she added.

Russia’s ambassador has been summoned to account for the incident.
