When they flight attendants asked her to quieten down, she kicked out at them with her prosthetic.

The crew were forced to restrain her and place her in handcuffs before the Thomson Airways plane made an emergency landing at London’s Gatwick airport.

A fellow passenger on the plane told the Edinburgh News  that the incident was “not a laughing matter at the time”.

“We were coming back from Tunisia when this lady kicked off. She was off her face on drink,” the passenger said.

“She was shouting ‘I want cigarettes’ and that she wanted a parachute to jump off the plane.

“She slapped a young girl and then assaulted the cabin crew with her prosthetic leg.

“They took it off her, but she started kicking them with her good leg.

“It sounds funny, but it was not a laughing matter at the time. It was serious. She was totally drunk. It was pretty shocking.”
