British Sky News reported on Thursday that two Russian Tu-160 heavy bombers entered the British airspace and left after being trailed by the British jets for four hours. The British Royal Air Force said they had successfully scrambled to intercept Russian aircraft on more than 20 occasions since the start of 2009.
