Two brothers have been slapped with a £50,000 fine and a lifetime ban from travelling with Jet2 after their violent outburst led to a flight being diverted.

Alfie and Kenneth Springthorpe acted with "unacceptable levels of aggression and even physical violence" while flying from London Stantsed to Crete.

As a result of their behaviour, the pilot had no other option than to divert the flight to Corfu so that the brothers, from Kent, could be removed from the plane.

Others onboard were delayed for almost four hours before the flight was able to take off again and arrive safely at Heraklion Airport, the Liverpool Echo reports.
