Police Board Ryanair Flight to Hand Out Water and Chocolates

A Ryanair flight from Prestwick Airport in Scotland to Girona, Spain, was stuck on a runway for 6 hours because of an air traffic control strike in France.  Passengers became increasingly upset after Ryanair staff refused to give them food or water due to what they said were “legal restrictions.”  I don’t know what that means.  In any case, police were called on board to restore order, and were later hailed as heroes when they (gasp) went into the terminal and bought water and chocolate for the passengers.

(As a side note, there are a couple of sketchy details that make me wonder how much of this whole thing is true, and how much is the Sun tabloid blowing things out of proportion.  Either way, when the police come on board with chocolate, it makes for a good story.)
