Mum told to 'shut up' child on flight shames passenger on Facebook

A mother's Facebook post shaming a passenger who yelled abuse at her family over their ill child having a "meltdown" on a flight has gone viral.

Nicola Colenso, from Northwich, said the "abusive" woman shouted "shut that child up" as her daughter Yasmin was crying on the flight to Manchester.

The eight-year-old suffers from Sturge-Weber syndrome, a rare condition affecting the skin, brain and eyes.

The mother's Facebook post has been shared nearly 100,000 times.
