LATEST: Passenger 57 actor Bruce Payne has been cautioned by police following an alleged air rage incident on a flight from Los Angeles to London.

The actor - who played a hijacker in the 1992 film - was accused of using threatening behaviour on the plane.

His lawyer claimed Payne simply argued with a man who refused to stop using his mobile phone after being asked to do so by flight crew.

He added flight passengers sometimes confuse the 47-year-old with the character he played in the movie.

Police will take no further action against Payne.
