A "disruptive" passenger was escorted off a flight at Belfast International Airport.

The flight from Reus in Spain landed on Friday afternoon. Details emerged on the news website Belfast Live.

Belfast International Airport said police were called and a man removed from the flight.

It was claimed the man was acting in an abusive manner by swearing loudly and "throwing insults about".

Thomas Cook said safety was its first priority and it did not tolerate disruptive behaviour.

“We can confirm that the police were called to meet [the] flight on arrival into Belfast from Reus (MT1173) following disruptive behaviour from a passenger," a spokeswoman told the Belfast Telegraph.

"The safety of our customers and crew is always our first priority, and we do not accept disruptive behaviour on board.”

In a statement to the Belfast Telegraph, a spokeswoman for Belfast International Airport added: “Airport Police were called to deal with an incident on board a Thomas Cook aircraft on arrival at Belfast International Airport yesterday. “
