An easyJet flight from London Gatwick to Belfast was delayed by over an hour after two members of the cabin crew were removed from the plane following a row.

The company which has its HQ at Luton airport and also operates flights from Stansted said it was a 'verbal disagreement'.

The flight was due to take off at 2.45pm on Wednesday but was held up.

TV presenter Dan Lobb was on board the plane and posted a series of messages about the incident.

"This is a first. My easyJet flight has returned to gate because the cabin crew have had a tiff! One crew member being offloaded. Delayed."

The safety and welfare of our passengers and crew is easyJet's highest priority and in order to deliver this easyJet's cabin crew need to be able to work as a team.
