A flight had to be held on the tarmac at Jersey Airport after a passenger refused to wear a mask on board.

Police boarded the EasyJet service to London Gatwick on Monday 24 August to deal with a passenger who was' behaving disruptively'.

The passenger then agreed to wear a mask and the flight was able to take off later than planned.

It comes just days after a bird strike caused a Jersey-bound flight to make an emergency landing at Liverpool John Lennon airport
