A disruptive passenger on an easyJet flight at Gatwick airport was tasered by police this morning.

The Belfast bound flight was delayed after a man was “dragged off the flight”, according to passengers.




Sussex Police said in a statement: “A man is in police custody after being tasered on an aircraft waiting to depart from Gatwick Airport to Belfast on Thursday morning.

“Police officers were called to the EasyJet flight shortly after 8am to reports of a passenger who was becoming increasingly abusive following a dispute over luggage.

“A man has been arrested on suspicion of breach of the peace. The aircraft has been disembarked and police are taking statements from witnesses among the crew and passengers.”
