Kate Moss escorted from easyJet flight after 'disruptive' behaviour

Model taken from plane by police officers after landing at London Luton airport but no formal complaints made

Supermodel Kate Moss was escorted off an easyJet flight at London Luton airport on Sunday by police because she had allegedly become disruptive.

The 41-year-old was coming home from a holiday in Turkey but after her plane landed around 4.15pm she was taken off the flight by police officers.

A spokesman for Bedfordshire police confirmed that they had been called to help with a “disruptive” passenger at Luton airport. “The passenger had been reported as being disruptive on the flight,” he said.

“Officers attended and escorted the passenger from the plane. No formal complaints were made against her and she was not arrested.”

An easyJet spokeswoman said that the police were called to the flight, arriving from tourist hotspot Bodrum, “due to the behaviour of a passenger on board”.

Moss has previously lost modelling contracts after allegations that she was an habitual cocaine user. She issued a public apology in 2005, saying that she needed to address personal issues and has since rebuilt her modelling career.

She has graced thousands of covers and walked down countless catwalks since a photoshoot in style magazine The Face made her a star in 1990.

She has worked with almost every major fashion designer, including Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney, as well as being the face of make-up company Rimmel.

The model rarely gives interviews but has spoken about the toll her work has taken on her, especially in her early years in the industry.

She told Vanity Fair she had a nervous breakdown while she was still a teenager while working on a campaign for Calvin Klein in the early 1990s.

In 2011, she married musician Jamie Hince in a star-studded ceremony in a rural Cotswolds village, with former partner Jefferson Hack – the father of her daughter Lila – among the guests.
