It’s a horrific verbal attack which left her feeling ‘stunned’ and ‘depressed’. Seventy-seven-year-old Delsie Gayle was subjected to a tirade of racial abuse from a fellow passenger on board a Ryanair flight from Barcelona to London at the weekend.
Captured on film, the male passenger is seen shouting at Ms Gayle, who suffers from arthritis, telling her to move seats so he could get to the window seat. Despite Delsie’s disability, the man proceeded to shout and swear until she moved.
So far, Ryanair have not apologised to Ms Gayle who was returning from a holiday intended to cheer her up after the anniversary of her husband’s death.
Delsie and daughter Carol join us in the studio as the matter is reported to Essex police.
