Essex: Poland football fans arrested for drunk behaviour on flight
8:29pm Monday 14th October 2013 in News
Three Polish football fans were arrested as they arrived at Stansted Airport ahead of tomorrow's match against England.
Passengers and crew on board the Ryanair flight from Warsaw claimed the trio were drinking spirits and made lewd and obscene comments to staff.
They refused to comply with orders to sit down and put their seat belts on.
The fans were arrested at lunchtime today.
Police have warned fans flying into Stansted that rowdy or drunken behaviour will not be tolerated.
Airport operational commander, Supt Glenn Maleary, said: "Let us make our message very clear. We will not tolerate bad behaviour at the airport or on board any flights coming into Stansted.
"Anyone who wants to challenge this will find themselves arrested and will therefore miss the game.”
A 46-year-old man, a 41-year-old man and 20-year-old man, all from Poland, were arrested and are currently in police custody at Stansted Airport.
England play Poland at Wembley Stadium tomorrow at 8pm.
