An easyJet flight from Paris to Glasgow has been postponed overnight after a scorpion was spotted on board the aircraft.

The airline said the plane will be fumigated as a precaution before it takes off a day behind schedule on Tuesday.

A passenger raised the alarm after noticing the arachnid on a flight from Glasgow to the French capital on Monday.

The aircraft is being held at Charles de Gaulle airport, in Paris, while it is fumigated.

In statement the airline said: “The safety and comfort of our passengers and crew is always our highest priority so, as a precaution, the aircraft will be fumigated before its next flight, EZY6884 to Glasgow, which is delayed overnight as a result.

“Although this is outside of our control, we would like apologise for any inconvenience to passengers.”

Passengers are being offered overnight accommodation in hotels, according to the airline.

One passenger tweeted a screenshot of easyJet’s live update, which read: “We were hoping that we would be able to continue with your flight today, but we were informed that a scorpion was sighted on board your plane.”

Another social media user believed to be on the flight added: “Some flight that was! Forget Snakes on a Plane, that was Scorpion on a Plane!”
