A PASSENGER who became disruptive on a Glasgow flight, forcing it to redirect, has been detained by Spanish police.

The Evening Times reported on Thursday night how the 6.20pm Ryanair flight FR 655 from Glasgow Prestwick to Malaga was forced to divert to Madrid amid reports of a fight on board.

A source told the Evening Times crew were forced to take action due to “fighting.”

One passenger said: “The fight started when one drunk man started pestering women in a hen party.

“Two men were trading punches in a full fist fight in the aisle. The cabin crew had to ask the passengers for help.

“I got up with others to try and restrain them.

“The back of the plane was in absolute chaos. One drunk man was still causing a scene and resisting 20 minutes later.

“Then the captain announced we are diverting to Madrid. The Spanish police arrived on board and took the man and a woman he was with off the plane.”

A Ryanair spokesman has now told the Evening Times: “This flight from Glasgow Prestwick to Malaga, on February 14, diverted to Madrid and the crew requested police assistance upon arrival after a passenger became disruptive in-flight.
