Man pinned down after running out of Dublin Airport terminal towards Ryanair plane

A man has been arrested this morning after running out of terminal one in Dublin Airport towards a plane.

The man, 20s, arrived at the departure gate for a Ryanair flight to Amsterdam but was told it was already closed.

Accompanied by a woman, the man became agitated and broke through a door and ran towards the plane.

Dublin Airport security soon pinned the passenger to the ground and he was brought to the airport police station.

The man has since been brought to Ballymun Garda Station where he is detained.

A garda spokesperson said: "Gardaí were called to the scene of an incident at Dublin Airport that occurred at approximately 7am today 27th September 2018.

"A male in his 20s has been arrested and taken to Ballymun Garda Station were he is currently detained."

The plane took off a few moments later with minimal delay.

A Dublin Airport spokesperson told Dublin Live: "A male and female passenger were late for a Ryanair flight to Amsterdam this morning and arrived at the boarding gate after the flight had closed.

"They were engaging with Ryanair staff at the gate and the male passenger was becoming agitated.

"He was banging on the window to try and get the aircraft to wait and he then broke through a door and made his way onto the apron, trying to flag the aircraft down.

"He was was initially restrained by Ryanair staff on the apron and Airport Police, who had already been contacted, arrived on the scene almost immediately and arrested him.
