Aer Lingus flight disrupted by climate change protestor


A Dublin-bound flight from London was grounded because of a climate change protester.

The man stood up with his phone to talk about climate change issues as the plane was preparing to take off.

He would not return back to his seat as cabin crew asked and therefore the plane had to be taxied back to the gate.

Police officers then removed the man from the plane. Video footage of the incident is being shared on social media.
