Shocked passengers said that the man tried to hit a stewardess with a fire extinguisher and open one of the plane doors.

While being restrained, the man said that he will ‘literally fight every one of you and kill you, and you don’t think I’m joking’.

The passengers reportedly had to hold the man down for 45 minutes as his tirade continued. He was then taken into custody by police after the plane landed.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News, Jodie said: “I could hear this guy at the front of the plane shouting and screaming things at other passengers.

"He came to the front of the plane and started throwing cups all over the floor of the plane.

"There were three members of cabin crew - one male and two females, but they were all Spanish so I think they struggled to understand him.

"He grabbed hold of my top and ripped it. He broke my phone and ripped my watch off my wrist.

"He bit my sister on the arm and he was about to bite me on the leg before a man and a woman came over and jumped on him.”

A spokesperson for Ryanair said: ““The crew of this flight from Manchester to Gran Canaria (4 May) requested police assistance upon landing after a passenger had a psychotic episode. The passenger became abusive towards and struck members of the cabin crew and had to be restrained by other passengers. This is now a matter for local police.”
