Reuters adds these details about the actual incident:

British Typhoon fighter jets were scrambled to intercept two Russian Bear long-range bombers which had flown close to UK airspace, Britain's Ministry of Defence (MoD) said on Thursday.

The Russian planes were detected flying over the Channel, south of England, on Wednesday and typhoons were launched from Royal Air Force (RAF) bases at Lossiemouth in Scotland and Coningsby in eastern England, the MoD said.

"The Russian planes were escorted by the RAF until they were out of the UK area of interest. At no time did the Russian military aircraft cross into UK sovereign airspace," the Ministry of Defence said in a statement.

As we've been reporting for nearly a year, such incidents used to be rare but have become alarmingly common over the last year. As evidence of this, Daily Mail has posted this picture of a "Russian Bear is escorted by an RAF jet during an alert in September."
