Passengers on an easyJet flight were delayed from landing for an hour because a man refused to turn off his phone. Police were called following the incident which is rumoured to have involved a member of a stag party group flying to the West Country. The flight from Manchester to Cornwall Airport Newquay was approaching its destination and about to land when the man reportedly became rude and abusive to the cabin crew after being told to switch his mobile phone off, reports Cornwall Live.

Devon and Cornwall Police confirmed they were called to the airport on Friday afternoon (May 20) after the landing incident was reported to them. The incident meant that the turnaround flight back to Manchester was delayed by more than one hour while police dealt with the passenger in question. : ‘Proof of life’ on Mars as foot-tall pink ‘alien’ spotted watching planet, expert says

It was claimed a stag party was responsible for the fracas, but police have not confirmed the information. It is not known whether the man involved was drunk or not. A police spokesman said: “There was an incident at Newquay airport this afternoon.

A passenger was talking on his mobile phone while the plane was landing.

When the cabin crew asked him to turn off as is the procedure during landing and take-off, he refused and became very abusive to the staff.”

The spokesman said that while the man was spoken to after the plane landed, no arrests have been made.
