The policeman added: “He said that they will all go to the villa and close their doors and there will be no problem, but it was clear that it was a recreational trip, and according to containment measures, this is strictly prohibited.”The standoff on the runway lasted for three hours before the police could return most of them to London. One of them traveled to Berlin.
