Mother convicted of attacking airline captain

A young mother has been convicted of attacking an airline captain after she was not allowed to store her child's pushchair in the cabin during a flight. Henrietta Mitaire, 23, pushed Captain Guido Keel to the floor, then scratched and kicked him after her plane arrived at Heathrow Airport on May 2 2019. Her mother, Mary Roberts, 53, was also accused of assault after she tried to intervene but was acquitted after trial. Courtesy: Henrietta Mitaire
