Passenger who racially abused woman set to face charges in Spain


A Ryanair passenger who was filmed racially abusing an elderly black woman is facing prosecution here after British authorities said they had no power to charge him.

David Mesher, who lives in Birmingham, was filmed by passengers on a flight from Barcelona to London racially abusing 78-year-old disabled widow Delsie Gayle.

Spanish authorities confirmed on Tuesday that criminal proceedings have been launched against him, one day after Essex Police said prosecutors in Britain could not charge him.
