An EasyJet flight to Tenerife was forced to divert after two passengers became involved in a rammy.

The EZY3113 from Glasgow had to land at Bristol Airport on Saturday, where it was met by officers on the tarmac. The two individuals who were behaving 'disruptively' when then escorted off the plane by cops.

The aircraft then took off and landed on the Canary Island around four hours later. The return flight to Glasgow was delayed overnight as the cabin crew had reached their maximum permitted flying hours following the incident.

Those impacted by the delay were provided accommodation and meals.

An easyJet spokesperson told Glasgow Live: "EasyJet can confirm that flight EZY3113 from Glasgow to Tenerife on 20 April diverted to Bristol where the aircraft was met by police due to two passengers behaving disruptively onboard. The flight then continued to Tenerife once the passengers were removed.

“EasyJet’s cabin crew are trained to assess and evaluate all situations and to act quickly and appropriately to ensure that the safety of the flight and other passengers is not compromised at any time. While such incidents are rare we take them very seriously and do not tolerate disruptive behaviour onboard, with the safety and wellbeing of passengers and crew always our highest priority.”
