An easyJet flight from the UK was forced to make an emergency landing due to “disruptive” passengers on board.
The plane took off from Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport at 13.06pm on Wednesday bound for Dalaman in Turkey and crashed about an hour later.
The plane began flying around the German city of Munich, where it eventually landed and encountered police. The officers boarded the plane and eliminated the two.
Although the details of their behavior have not been released by the authorities, a fellow passenger told Echoes of Liverpool they and others feel “unsafe” as the situation develops.
