Passenger charged with being drunk on aircraft after flight diverted to Bristol

Updated: 

An airline passenger arrested after a late-night flight from Barcelona to the UK was diverted has been charged with being drunk on an aircraft.

Daniel Fletcher, of McNeill Avenue in Crewe, will appear in court next month after the disturbance on board an easyJet flight to Liverpool at 11.30pm on Thursday meant the flight was instead re-directed to Bristol.

Fletcher will appear before magistrates in Bristol on Thursday, October 5.

Three others arrested - two men aged 21 and 29 and a 26-year-old woman - have been released with no further action taken, Avon and Somerset Police said.
