Must read

An easyJet flight from the UK to Turkey was diverted to Greece after two passengers became drunk, unruly and started shouting at other people on the plane, authorities said.

The flight from Manchester to Dalaman took off early on Sunday morning but had to change course due to the behaviour of the two Russian men.

The pair, aged 48 and 39, were arrested after the plane touched down in Thessaloniki in northern Greece.

They have been charged with disturbing the peace, disrupting transport and disobeying instructions from crew members.

Officials confirmed there had not been a physical altercation.

The pair were released pending a trial in November, which they do not have to attend in person, but will be represented by lawyers.

After arriving in Greece without a visa, the men were taken to a police station but were expected to be put on a flight to Turkey.

Sky News has approached easyJet for comment.
