A Ryanair passenger was arrested on Monday after forcing his way out of the emergency exit of a plane and sitting on the wing. 

The man, a 57-year-old Polish national, reportedly got annoyed after his flight departure was delayed by almost an hour at Stansted Airport. 

When the plane arrived in Malaga, passengers were left waiting another 30 minutes with no explanation.

The man grabbed his hand luggage and made his way onto the wing, but was eventually talked back on board by ground staff, The Irish Times reports. 

A spokesman for Ryanair said: "This airport security breach occurred after landing in Malaga airport on January 1st.

"Malaga airport police immediately arrested the passenger in question and since this was a breach of Spanish safety and security regulations, it is being dealt with by the Spanish authorities."

That's one way to skip the queues...
