Five Brits were arrested after becoming rowdy on a Thomas Cook flight

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police confirmed to local media the men were arrested with help from the Canadian Border Services Agency for mischief and causing a disturbance.

A spokesman told the Winnipeg Sun: “None of the males resisted officers and all were escorted off the plane in handcuffs without incident.”

Thomas Cook flight 2924 landed in Winnipeg at around 11.15am local time and eventually arrived in Las Vegas more than two-and-a-half hours behind schedule.

A Thomas Cook Airlines spokesman told Sun Online: “"Flight MT2924 from Manchester to Las Vegas on Saturday was diverted to Winnipeg in Canada as result of disruptive passengers.

"Five passengers were offloaded in Winnipeg. Our flight then continued to Las Vegas with a delay of 2 hours 40 minutes."

The five men said to have been hauled off the plane have not been named.

It comes after a woman was thrown off an easyJet flight for asking a crew member if he "wants her to be a prostitute".

The foul-mouthed passenger yelled at the male flight attendant on the flight from Manchester to Paphos, Cyprus.

The captain was forced to land the place in Athens where a total of four women were kicked off for being rowdy, Manchester Evening News reported.
