    Default Woman nicked after limb-hurling on flight

    Mental case!

    An Edinburgh-bound plane had to be diverted to Gatwick Airport after a woman allegedly became abusive and threw her prosthetic leg at cabin crew.

    Sussex police said the 48-year-old from Edinburgh began "swearing blue murder" and throwing food at staff on a Thomson Airways flight.

    The captain then diverted the plane, which was flying from Tunisia.

    The woman was arrested by police at the North Terminal on Wednesday night

    She was taken to Crawley police station where she was questioned by officers on suspicion of threatening behaviour.

    'Swearing blue murder'

    In a statement, Sussex Police said: "At 10.22pm on Wednesday a 48-year-old unemployed woman from Edinburgh was arrested at the North Terminal, Gatwick Airport, on suspicion of using threatening behaviour while aboard Thompson flight 297 from Tunisia to Edinburgh.

    "The flight was diverted into Gatwick after it was alleged the woman had been abusive and had thrown a prosthetic leg and food at cabin crew."

    A spokesman added: "She was swearing blue murder, saying she was going to do this and that and the other, so the flight was diverted to Gatwick."

    Aww, the BBC article in Cam's one didn't have the best bit in it, the passengers singing the hokey cokey.
