Abusive passenger starts fires on flight

Aircraft has had to be taken out of service
A police investigation has been launched after a passenger on a plane operated by British carrier Monarch Airlines allegedly started two fires in the toilets on a flight to Sharm el Sheikh. The aircraft has had to be taken out of service.
The Airbus A321 from Birmingham, with 201 passengers on board, was met by police in Egypt after a man had reportedly smoked in the toilets and started a blaze – on two separate occasions.
According to press reports, the man was also very abusive to cabin crew and other passengers.
The return flight was delayed by 24 hours while a replacement aircraft could be flown to the resort. The UK’s West Midlands Police are investigating the incident.
