Breaking: passenger restrained after allegedly trying to enter the cockpit of a US bound flight from London.

Breaking: A woman has been forcibly restrained after allegedly trying to enter the cockpit of a Boston-bound British Airways flight from London.

A woman is in custody after she had to be restrained during a flight from London to Boston for allegedly trying to enter the cockpit.

British Airways told police that the woman tried to enter the cockpit Tuesday on Flight 213 but there is conflicting information about what the passenger is accused to have done. The Federal Aviation Administration said the passenger tried to get out an exit door.

US police said the passenger allegedly was trying to rush the cockpit.

There are media reports that the woman was intoxicated.

The flight landed about a half-hour ahead of schedule at Boston’s Logan International Airport at 1:30 p.m. A spokesman for state police says troopers were getting ready to board the plane to take the passenger into custody.

In a statement, British Airways called the passenger “unruly” and said the flight crew asked that police meet the flight in Boston.

More to come.
