An EasyJet flight from Gatwick to Gibraltar was diverted and two passengers had to be escorted off the aircraft by security after they were allegedly aggressive to crew and other flyers.

The flight from London Gatwick to Gibraltar was diverted to Bordeaux, France, where police met two passengers who allegedly caused trouble on board.

Footage from the plane shows other flyers cheering and filming the moment when officers board the flight and walk up to the couple, a man and woman.
