Two easyJet fliers escorted by police over Brexit row

Published on : Wednesday, April 5, 2017

EasyJet (UK) A319-100 G-EZBI (14-William Shakespeare)(Grd) SEN (KDB)(46)-MTwo ‘disruptive’ passengers from an easyJet plane had to be escorted by the police following a heated argument over Gibraltar’s post-Brexit future.

 
The heated arguments broke out between Gibraltarian and Spanish passengers on the plane and they were met by police upon landing at Gatwick Airport yesterday, it is alleged.
An eyewitness on the flight from Gibraltar said it was a “really heated argument” over the current situation in Gibraltar.

 
“The cabin crew were keeping them apart and trying to stop [them] from getting at each other,” the man, speaking anonymously, told the media.

 
The passenger added he didn’t hear the group of Spanish passengers answer back after an outburst from a woman living in Gibraltar.

 
A spokesperson for Sussex Police said: “Police were informed at 12:55pm on Tuesday of disruptive passengers onboard an EasyJet flight from Gibraltar.

 
“Officers boarded when the plane landed at Gatwick ay 1.30pm. Two people were taken from the flight and given words of advice about their behaviour.”

 
The row comes after Spain was accused of using Brexit to make a “land grab” for Gibraltar under official guidelines for negotiations drawn up by the EU.

 
EasyJet added “the flight was met by police on arrival due to two passengers behaving disruptively”.

 
“EasyJet’s cabin crew are trained to assess and evaluate all situations and to act quickly and appropriately to ensure the safety of the flight,” the airline said.

    Sounds like some of the heated outbursts from democrats who can’t accept that they lost the election.
