An "intoxicated" Ryanair passenger had to be restrained by seven different people mid-flight as he shouted and swore at distressed children, causing them to cry.

At least five passengers and two members of the airline crew were on hand to apprehend the allegedly drunk man on a flight from London to Kaunas, Lithuania.

The passenger was promptly detained by police once the plane landed in Lithuania, after an altercation allegedly started by in-flight staff requesting he stop drinking alcohol.

The rowdy passenger, sporting a vest top and leaning into the row behind him, was spotted aggressively shouting at another passenger who was travelling with their young child.

The unnamed, allegedly intoxicated bloke was confronted by two members of the cabin crew in the middle aisle as the apparent father of the child tried to hold back the "drunk" man.

As the situation escalated, the man, who seemed unsteady on his feet in footage of the flight, could be heard screaming: "I don't f***ing care who the f**k you are. I don't f***ing want you to touch me."

He then began to lash out at other passengers on board the flight, with one passenger stating that the man had "brought his own alcohol" on board the flight and "got aggressive" after being asked to stop drinking.

The passenger, who wishes to remain unnamed, continued: "He started threatening passengers around him, in particular a man with a small child sat behind him and in front of me.

"He punched his own dad who is seen on the video trying to calm him down. He was trying really hard to calm his son down and seemed to be mortified.

"It all started with the cabin crew telling him to stop drinking in the first place but he refused and kept drinking. He seemed to be very intoxicated, slurring his speech and could not walk straight."

A Ryanair spokesperson said: "The crew of this flight from Luton to Kaunas (13 Aug) requested police assistance upon arrival after a passenger became disruptive in-flight.

"The aircraft landed normally and police removed and detained this individual passenger at Kaunas. This is now a matter for local police."
