Second man arrested as plane lands at Stansted

Essex Police Officers have arrested a second man on suspicion of a hate crime at Stansted Airport around 4.30pm today, Saturday November 6.

Officers arrested the 26-year-old man as he stepped off a flight from the Netherlands.

The man was taken to an Essex Police station for questioning and has now been released on police bail until December 1.

The arrest has been made in connection with the investigation of a video on social media of a man being subjected to harassment whilst taking his seat on board an aeroplane before it departed from Stansted Airport on November 4.

A 55-year-old man who was arrested yesterday (November 5) has also been released on bail until December 1.

Police continue to ask anyone who has information or who may have phone footage of the incident to call 101.
