Essex: Football fan writes apology letter to cabin crew after arrest
10:01am Tuesday 15th October 2013 in News
Three Polish football fans who were arrested for drunken behaviour on a plane have been released.
The trio were kept in cells for seven hours at Stansted Airport after being detained yesterday lunchtime.
Ten flights from Poland are expected to arrive at Stansted today ahead of Poland's match against England tonight.
Police have sent warnings to all departure airports that they face arrest for disruptive behaviour.
The three Polish men were arrested on a Ryanair flight from Warsaw yesterday.
A 20-year-old man received a caution after he admitted being drunk on an aircraft and using abusive words to cabin crew.
He also agreed to write a letter of apology to the crew member involved.
A 46-year-old man admitted being drunk on an aircraft and also received a caution.
A 41-year-old man was released without charge.
Airport operational commander, Supt Glenn Maleary, said: "Let us make our message very clear. We will not tolerate bad behaviour at the airport or on board any flights coming into Stansted.
"Anyone who wants to challenge this will find themselves arrested and will therefore miss the game.”
