Im starting to lose count of how many times this has happened now.

Two Typhoon fighter jets were launched from RAF Lossiemouth to intercept Russian bombers heading towards the UK, the Ministry of Defence has confirmed.

The Russian Bear aircraft were escorted away from Britain's area of interest but at no stage crossed into UK sovereign airspace.

A spokesman said: "RAF Quick Reaction Alert Typhoon fighter aircraft were launched today from RAF Lossiemouth after unidentified aircraft were tracked flying towards UK airspace.
