A British holidaymaker has been banned for life from flying with Ryanair after 'inappropriate behaviour' - including passing out in the loo for 30 minutes and harassing women - saw him arrested on the tarmac in Tenerife.

Spanish police were forced to wrestle the man to the ground after he flew into the Canary Island hotspot from Bournemouth on Tuesday 30 June.

One eyewitness, Keiran Campbell, 37, said the man, thought to be in his late 20s or early 30s, had to be carried off the plane by his arms and legs.

He managed to take photos of the moment the man was held down by police on the runway.

According to the Metro, he said: "Some other passengers were moved forward from the back to behind us and said he kept trying to touch the girls sat in front of him.

"I think it all kicked off because a bloke stuck up for them. He tried to fight him but then he passed out in the toilet for at least half an hour, maybe an hour.

"It all calmed down a bit but kicked off again when we landed. The captain said the police needed to come on board and when they took him off they literally had to carry him off by his feet and arms."

Speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph, Keiran added: "I believe the man came down from Portsmouth and spent the night in the airport, as I overheard him talking with a woman on the counter in duty free.

"He barged his way through people and locked himself in the loo. He eventually came out and the cabin crew moved to the back. He then kicked off again assaulting cabin crew and was pushed right to the back. The cabin crew stood between him and the other passengers until we landed."

A Ryanair spokesman confirmed to the Daily Mail that the man has been banned for life from flying with them, and said: "The crew of this flight from Bournemouth to Tenerife requested police assistance after a passenger became disruptive in-flight.

"The aircraft landed normally and police removed and detained this individual upon arrival at Tenerife.

"We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and we sincerely apologised to other customers for any inconvenience caused."
