A drunken British passenger forced a plane headed for Tenerife to make an emergency landing after the pilot pleaded for help from 'cops or soldiers.'
The incident happened on board a flight run by Dutch budget airline Transavia from Eindhoven in the Netherlands to Tenerife in the Spanish Canary Islands on New Year's Day.
One passenger on the flight, who wished to remain anonymous, said: 'He was shouting 'b*tch' and was behaving in a boisterous way.'
According to a Transavia spokeswoman, the unnamed man behaved increasingly aggressively towards other passengers and crew members once on the aeroplane.
