Thomas Cook flight with 231 holidaymakers on board travelling from Newcastle, England to Dalaman in Turkey had to be diverted to Bulgaria’s capital Sofia after an allegedly drunk woman passenger became abusive and disruptive, British media outlets have reported.

The pilot was forced to divert to Sofia on Sunday night so the problem passenger could be taken off the plane. Bulgarian police met the plane as it landed and the passenger was removed from the flight.

Thomas Cook has confirmed the plane had to change its course because of a “disruptive” passenger, according to chroniclelive.co.uk.
