Ryanair flight to Ibiza forced to land in France as lad is kicked off looking worse for wear

A passenger was hauled off a Ryanair flight from Liverpool to Ibiza after the plane was forced to divert and make a landing in Bordeaux, France.
The plane had set off from Liverpool John Lennon Airport at around 12:40pm this afternoon (3 October) and should have been jetting off for the sunny Spanish island before things took a turn for the French. Watch here:
The Ryanair flight had been in the skies for about an hour when it changed course and started flying for Bordeaux-Mérignac Airport, with the plane's wheels touching the runway at around 3:30pm local time (remember they're an hour ahead over there).
Police were ready to meet the plane and footage from onboard the flight appeared to show a passenger looking significantly worse for wear being escorted off the flight.
Officers asked the man if he had any luggage with him before helping him disembark the plane, and as footage appeared to show him very unsteady on his feet he needed a lot of help.
The police soon realised they'd have to hold him up to get him off the flight and passengers let out a cheer as he was taken off the plane, with some even applauding.
Officers taking the guy onto the tarmac even seemed to get in on the fun as well, with one of them shouting 'ole' as the unsteady guy went by and even waved at some of the other passengers, causing them to laugh.
Footage then showed them taking extra care to get him down the stairs without tumbling to the ground, with those stuck on the plane seeing the funny side to their diversion.
One passenger said the wobbly-legged lad was 'all over the place' and 'doesn't even know where he is'.
Meanwhile, others said he 'can't walk down the stairs' and pointed out that even the police were 'laughing their head off'.
The plane has since arrived in Ibiza, albeit one passenger lighter than it was supposed to be.
Not everyone who prepares to jet off to a sunny destination actually makes it there, with plenty of passengers acting up and being kicked off their flights.
Then of course there are the times passengers wish they could be kicked off the flight, like when a man got hold of the intercom and decided to host a sing-along with it to his captive audience.
A spokesperson for Ryanair told LADbible: "This flight from Liverpool to Ibiza (3 October) diverted to Bordeaux after a passenger became disruptive inflight.
"Crew called ahead for police assistance and the aircraft was met by local police upon arrival who removed the passenger. The flight continued to Ibiza following a short delay."
"This is now a matter for local police."
