Stag do drunks arrested after feuding parties cause chaos on flight

A 10-year-old child was hit on the head by a flying wine bottle as scuffles broke out between the rival groups, a mother travelling with her two children told the Daily Record.

She claimed many among them were "absolutely hammered" before the flight took off at 11.15am.

Spanish officers were waiting for the flight when it landed.

But some of the troublemakers swapped clothes to confuse the airline staff.

The shocked mum said: "Everyone I spoke to said they'd never experienced anything like it."

Ryanair confirmed their crew had requested police assistance and four passengers were removed and detained at Alicante.

A spokesman added: "We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour and the safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority."

Meanwhile, a Thomas Cook flight from Glasgow to Las Vegas was delayed yesterday so a drunk passenger could be removed.
