Panic on the streets of Derby

22 August 2014

Jet2.com logo Mass fighting scenes in Derby, as a promotional stunt by an airline went horribly wrong.

A load of young women (why they had to women, but hey - patriachy) ran down the street dressed in red morph suits, brandishing Jet2 tickets.

The stunt was to celebrate five years of flying from East Midlands Airport.

Whereas the same stunt had gone relatively smoothly in Nottingham and Leicester, Derby saw reports of people tackling some of the promotional morphs to the ground, and general mayhem.

Comments on the Jet2.com Facebook page suggested the event turned a bit mob-like.

Jet2 said in a statement: "We had three events across the East Midlands yesterday and while Leicester and Nottingham went smoothly, the giveaway in Derby generated a little more excitement than anticipated."

"Whilst one or two of our team were a bit shaken, we took care to make sure everyone was OK."

'A little more excitement' indeed.

Here's some people on Facebook talking about what happened, with one person saying that the whole thing turned into a bit of a "Fight Club". Helps pass the time doesn't it?
