One passenger told ChronicleLive: “She ran past Jet2 staff at the gate and sat in the front row.

“Security staff were trying to calm her down – 30 minutes later she kicked off.”

A Jet2.com spokesperson said: “We can confirm that a customer was removed from one of our flights today by Spanish police prior to departure from Gran Canaria to Newcastle.

“We are now working with local authorities and are investigating the incident in line with our Onboard Together policy which takes a zero tolerance approach towards disruptive behaviour.”
