About 30 passengers on a Ryanair flight between Edinburgh and Ibiza staged "violent" and "intimidating" scenes during the journey, according to the Daily Mirror.

The group of more than 30 men left the passengers terrified by their "disgusting" behaviour as they became increasingly drunk.

One of them subjected a cabin crew member to verbal abuse, while another attempted to "get off" the plane in the air.

Police assistance upon arrival in Ibiza had to be requested. The events took place on July 10.
