Britain scrambled two Royal Air Force Typhoon jets on Monday from Scotland to intercept Russian planes near the United Kingdom's airspace, a defence ministry spokesman said.
The Typhoons were scrambled from RAF Lossiemouth in Moray, Scotland.
"This is a live operation and therefore we will not be providing any additional information until the mission is complete," the spokesman said.
