Fight at Luton - - getting back to normal?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan...herts-57127034

Four people were injured and 17 people were arrested after a fight broke out at London Luton Airport.

Bedfordshire Police said the incident happened at about 08:00 BST on Friday.

The force said three people were taken to hospital with serious injuries and those arrested, on suspicion of violent disorder, were taken into custody for questioning.

A spokesman for the airport said it was "shocked and saddened" by the incident in the airside main departure lounge.

He added: "We take a zero tolerance approach to violence and continue to assist the police with their inquiries. We would like to sincerely apologise to any passengers affected."

And just for a change they weren't British Frankly, although I would never condone violence of any sort, having worked at LTN for six months, I think that area of the terminal could just incite me to violence if I'd been incarcerated there for a couple of hours!

Eleven charged after fight breaks out at Luton Airport - BBC News

Am I right in thinking that whilst most British citizens are not permitted to travel, it seems people from eastern Europe are free to come and go at will?. A look at the LTN monitor seems to show about 85% of the passenger flights are to or from eastern Europe.

Gotta get those cars washed and the strawberries picked - our own are too lazy to do it.

Or alternatively, our own are canny enough to know that this sort of back breakingly hard work doesn't pay the bills here.

Why do people continually take the view that people are lazy just because they don't want do this sort of work for a pittance?

This topic is already running in Luton Airport thread [Airlines, Airports & Routes]. If you really want to get stuck in, please walk to the far side of our airport, to where they test jet engines.
