Passengers on a half-empty plane were shocked when an air hostess asked for eight 'fat' people to move. The eight passengers were asked to move to the front of the plane as the captain was unhappy with weight distribution in the cabin.

Peter Harrison who was on the Britannia Airways flight from Tenerife to Gatwick said: "She said there were too many passengers at the back of the plane and she needed eight fat people sat in rows 31 to 42 to sit nearer the front."
