A Ryanair flight from Glasgow to Spain had to be diverted last night after a ‘full fist fight’ reportedly broke out on board amid scenes of ‘absolute chaos’.

Eyewitnesses report that the fight started out when a drunk male started to ‘pester’ two women on a hen party. This then resulted in two men getting into a physical altercation which escalated to the point that cabin crew had to get fellow customers to intervene.

The plane, which had been heading from Glasgow Prestwick to the southern Spanish city of Malaga, was forced to divert to Madrid.  The disruptive passenger was met by Spanish police in the country’s capital before the jet carried on to its intended destination.

A Ryanair statement said: ‘The flight from Glasgow Prestwick to Malaga diverted to Madrid and the crew requested police assistance upon arrival after a passenger became disruptive in-flight.’

‘The aircraft landed normally and police removed and detained an individual before the aircraft continued to Malaga.’

‘We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and the safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority. This is now a matter for local police.’
