These photos show the moment a husband-to-be was forced to end his stag party early after being booted off a holiday jet as it sat on the tarmac.

The unknown stag was seen being taken off the Ryanair flight from Manchester to Spain earlier tonight after fellow passengers and crew members accused him and pals of being 'drunk and abusive'.

It is understood the captain of flight FR9073 called police after becoming concerned about the behaviour of the group of men who were on his plane at Manchester Airport's Terminal 3.

Officers boarded the packed Boeing 737-800 just minutes before it was due to take off and removed the stag and two of his pals in front of shocked passengers.

According to the Manchester Evening News , moments later one of the passengers, wearing a white t-shit and baseball cap, is seen leaving the plane.

The drama meant the departure of the aircraft, due to leave at 5.10pm, was delayed for almost an hour.

It arrived in Alicante, Spain, at 8.21pm UK time.

A passenger on board has confirmed the stag and two of his friends were removed, with the captain said to have threatened to divert the jet if there was any more trouble on board.

“They were being abusive so police were called. They were supposed to be on a stag do to Benidorm,” said the passenger.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police confirmed three men from a stag party were ‘off-loaded’ after complaints they were being ‘drunk and abusive’.

The captain warned the remaining men from the party, who stayed on board for the flight, to behave or they would also be ejected.

A spokesman for Ryanair said: “The crew of this flight from Manchester to Alicante (19 May) requested police assistance ahead of departure, after a number of passengers became disruptive. The individuals were removed and detained by police before the aircraft departed to Alicante. Ryanair apologised to affected customers for the slight delay to their journey. We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and the safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority. This is now a matter for local police.”
