A man travelling from Iceland to London was turned away from two flights after he wore eight pairs of trousers and 10 shirts to avoid paying for excess luggage.

But despite acknowledging his role in the confrontation, Mr Williams took to Instagram to record the events and accuse the airline of racial profiling.

After being taken to the police station, he then returned to the airport to catch a second flight, but was again turned away after the previous incident.

After he gave his statement to the police, he was allowed to return to the airport to catch another flight he had booked with Easy Jet airlines.

British Airways said the artist and clothing designer from south London was barred entry to his original flight when he attempted to board with an oversized bag. He included a video of himself asking why he could not board and a staff member saying: "Do we need to call the police?"

The Iceland Monitor reported Hawaii was turned away after being disruptive, with a video he posted on Twitter showing airport security approaching him and telling him not to film them.

According to him, EasyJet and British Airways both refunded him after he complained to them.
