One man was reportedly removed from flight EZY134 following an alleged altercation between a passenger and cabin crew.

A spokeswoman for the airline said: "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.

"Whilst such incidents are rare, we take them very seriously, do not tolerate abusive or threatening behaviour on board, and always push for prosecution.

"The safety and well-being of passengers and crew is always easyJet's priority."

Last month a Belfast-bound flight from London was delayed for over an hour due to a tiff between air stewards over water bottles.
