‘All actions to ensure the safety of passengers and all air traffic are currently being carried out by Police of the Czech Republic.’

Czech police said ‘pyrotechnicians’ had been sent to the scene in order to investigate and dispose of the suspicious device.

It is thought passengers were taken off the plane while a search was carried out by police investigators.

Prague Airport officials later added that ‘no dangerous object was found on the plane after the pyrotechnic inspection.’ 

EasyJet’s website shows a follow-on flight was arranged for some passengers taking off from Prague shortly after 11pm local time heading to Bristol.

A second follow-on flight is currently scheduled to take off at 12.35pm today and arrive in Bristol shortly after 1pm local time.
