A ten-year-old boy was hit on the head with a wine bottle on a Ryanair flight after a "crazy" brawl erupted mid-air.

Frightened families watched as a stag party clashed with passengers on the three-hour trip to from Edinburgh to Alicante, Spain.

It's believed the brawl erupted after a member of the stag party repeatedly shouted 'topknot' at another passenger, before a female "snapped and jumped at the group", according to The Sun.

Conor Cockburn (27) who was on the flight said that he had “never been on a flight quite like it”.

According to reports, police were waiting at the Spanish airport ready to escort the brawlers from the plane.

Ryanair confirmed that Spanish officials were waiting for the plane when it landed – and escorted four people off.

A Ryanair spokesperson said: "The crew of this flight from Edinburgh to Alicante requested police assistance upon landing in Alicante, after four passengers became disruptive in-flight.

"The aircraft landed normally and the individuals were removed and detained by police in Alicante.

"We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and the safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority. This is now a matter for local police."
