POLICE have hauled 14 ‘drunken’ Brits off a Jet2 flight which touched down in Spain.
Guardia Civil officers at Palma Airport in Mallorca waited for the men who were travelling from Edinburgh.
The incident occurred yesterday at around 10am, with Diario de Mallorca reporting that there were about a dozen police cars engaged in the ‘spectacular operation’.
No arrests were made but the men were processed by officers for a report for the Spanish Aviation Safety and Security Agency (AESA).
The passengers were apparently walking in the aisles when the seat belt signs were on, and refused to obey the orders of staff.
They may now face fines of up to €585,000 for a ‘very serious’ breach of safety laws.
A police spokesperson said: “The tourists were not arrested but they were identified and have been reported to the Spanish Aviation Safety and Security Agency.”
A source added that the group of ‘drunken holidaymakers’ needed to be removed so the situation ‘didn’t get any worse’, as reported by the Mirror.
It was Jet2 that made the decision to call the cops to deal with what its spokesperson called ‘disorderly’ passengers.
