A TRIO of Brits have been arrested for allegedly "mocking" two other Brits on a holiday flight for "being gay".
The incident is said to have happened on a plane from the East Midlands to Gran Canaria.
Police in the Canaries say the trio, aged between 25 and 28, were arrested "for a suspected crime against the fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution" by discriminating and damaging the dignity of two other people.
The investigation began after the gay couple arrived on the holiday island and reported being verbally abused during the flight by the three Brits.
They claimed the abuse started during the flight from the UK but then continued on the airport bus to the terminal to collect luggage.
The pair were able to give the Civil Guard a detailed description of the three British holidaymakers and they were eventually found staying in the holiday resort of Playa del Inglés.
Police say the three suspects were passed over to the courts but did not specify if they were charged or have been dealt with.
No details of the airline were given or whether the people involved are men or women.
The three were arrested on February 9th but details have only just been released by the police.
Earlier this month we reported on five Brits locked up for “pornographic dancing” who had their heads shaved and were being forced to wear Guantanamo Bay-style prison garb.
Disturbing images showed the group in terror suspect-style orange uniforms awaiting trial in Cambodia’s Siem Reap Prison.
