Armed police take over easyJet flight to Malaga after passenger mutiny.
EASYJET passengers staged a mutiny after armed police tried to evict two black men off a flight to Malaga.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
what is this world coming to? Are we going to have passengers refusing to wear their seatbelts, or refusing to put their seats upright? There is a reason for all these precautions, safety reasons! As far as I’m concerned the two guilty persons including all passengers that mutinied should be banned from all passenger carrying companies for a period of several years!
