Theresa May's spokesman refused to comment explicitly on the incident as Essex Police are investigating.But he said the prime minister was "clear" she condemned racial abuse."When people are travelling and going about their public life, no-one should be subjected to intimidation or any form of abuse," the spokesman said."The Prime Minister has always been clear that racial abuse is abhorrent."In relation to this particular case, there's obviously an investigation being conducted by Essex Police and it's right that I don't comment specifically on that."A video of the original outburst was posted online on Friday afternoon.

It showed a row break out as flight from Barcelona to Stansted prepared to take off.The victim, 77-year-old Mrs Gayle, was defended by her daughter, who told a man sitting next to them that her mother was disabled.He replied: "I don't care whether she's f****** disabled or not - if I tell her to get out she gets out".The unidentified man then called her an "ugly f****** c***" and threatened to "push" her to another seat unless she was moved.
