Stansted Airport: Woman, 20, to appear in court after security alert on easyJet flight

A 20-year-old woman will appear in court on Wednesday (April 19) after a security alert on board an easyJet flight at Stansted Airport.

Lucia Johnson, of Marrowbrook Lane, Farnborough, Hampshire, faces two counts of sending an offensive, indecent, obscene or menacing message or matter. She is to appear at Colchester Magistrates' Court.

The charges relate to an incident on a plane at the airport six months ago for which three people, aged 19 to 23, were arrested.


An Essex Police spokesman said: "We received a call reporting a security concern on a plane on the ground at the airport shortly after 7.40pm on Wednesday, October 19.

"Officers responded quickly and worked with our partners at Stansted to move the plane to a secure area so they could carry out enquiries.

"Following a search of the plane, nothing of concern was found on board.

"Three people – two men, aged 19 and 23, and a 20-year-old woman – were arrested."

The men have since been told they face no further action.
