Racist abuse on Ryanair plane investigated by police



Details of an incident where a man hurled racist abuse at an elderly black woman on a Ryanair flight have been passed on to Spanish authorities.

Essex Police says: “We have worked to identify both parties involved in this incident and passed this information to the Spanish authorities, who are leading on this investigation.

“Our officers will continue to provide assistance where necessary throughout the course of this case.”

In footage recorded by another passenger on the flight from Barcelona to Stansted, a man calls 77-year-old Delsie Gayle, who is disabled, an “ugly f****** c***” and an “ugly black b******”.

The budget airline reported the matter to Essex Police after video of the row was shared tens of thousands of times on Facebook.

The row took place before take-off on Friday afternoon.

At the beginning of the footage, the woman’s daughter can be heard telling the man her mother is disabled.

He replies: “I don’t care whether she’s f****** disabled or not – if I tell her to get out she gets out.”

He tells staff to move the woman to another seat, adding: “If you don’t go to another seat I’ll push you to another seat.”

The man, who has not been named, shouts “don’t talk to me in a foreign language you stupid ugly cow”.
