Disruptive passengers cause flight diversion

An EasyJet flight from Gatwick Airport to Gibraltar had to be diverted due to two disruptive passengers.

Holidaymakers on flight EZY8905 which departed Gatwick on Monday night, cheered as the pair were removed by French police from the plane which was rerouted to Bordeaux in France.

The two passengers were said to have become aggressive towards crew members on the flight.

An EasyJet spokesperson said they did not tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour towards their staff.
