An easyJet passenger was jailed after hurling abuse at cabin crew and attacking a police officer who attempted to arrest him.

Michael Warrilow was jailed for 15 months following the incident on a flight from Amsterdam to Liverpool John Lennon Airport in October 2013.

Liverpool Echo reports that Warrilow started looking for food in the trolley and when he was asked to stop, he told the flight attendant to "drop the f***ing attitude".

He was later asked to pick up a pile of crisps he had dropped on the floor, to which he replied: "I'm not a f***ing dog, especially not your f***ing dog".

Liverpool Crown Court heard how he made homophobic comments to a male flight attendant when he intervened.

As he was warned the police would be called, he said: "I don't give a ****. Get away you **** before I hit you."

The Daily Mail reports that police arrested him when the plane landed in Liverpool but he struggled so violently that he broke a police officer's thumb.

Mr Warrilow insisted that he had not assaulted police officers but two weeks before the trial he pleaded guilty to causing actual bodily harm.

Judge Andrew Menary said: "Travelling on an aeroplane is stressful enough without passengers behaving as you were behaving."
