United Airlines plane forced to land due to passenger's faeces

A plane carrying more than 200 passengers from Chicago to Hong Kong was diverted to Alaska after two of the aircraft's toilets were vandalised with excrement, officials said. The United Airlines flight was forced to make an unscheduled landing in Anchorage on Thursday evening due to a "Passenger smearing faeces everywhere". "We received a report of a passenger who had messed up the bathrooms with his own faeces," Anchorage Airport police spokesman Lt Joe Gamache said. The man, who made no threats and did not try to interfere with the flight crew, was handcuffed by police at Anchorage International Airport and escorted off the plane. United Airlines said in a statement that flight UA895 was carrying 245 people when it was diverted because of "a disruptive passenger".
