Supermodel Kate Moss was escorted from a flight by police after reports that she was being “disruptive”, sources said.

No complaints were made and she was not arrested following her arrival into Luton Airport from Bodrum in Turkey yesterday.

A Bedfordshire Police spokesman said: “We were called to assist staff in escorting a passenger from a flight arriving into Luton airport this afternoon. The passenger had been reported as being disruptive on the flight.

“Officers attended and escorted the passenger from the plane. No formal complaints were made against her and she was not arrested.”

An easyJet spokeswoman said: “easyJet can confirm that police met flight EZY2232 from Bodrum to London Luton yesterday due to the behaviour of a passenger onboard.”

Moss (41) has been one of the world’s best-known faces for more than two decades and has spent more than half her life in the public eye.

Famously discovered by Storm model agency founder Sarah Doukas aged 14 at JFK Airport, her early ascent to global fame saw her starring in Calvin Klein ads.

She has graced thousands of covers and walked countless catwalks since a photo-shoot in style magazine The Face made her a star.

Her waifish looks, party lifestyle, and a string of celebrity partners, including Johnny Depp and Pete Doherty, have kept her in the headlines for years and she has worked with almost every major fashion designer, including Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney, as well as being the face of make-up company Rimmel.

The model rarely gives interviews but has spoken about the toll her work took on her, especially in her early years in the industry.

She told Vanity Fair she had a nervous breakdown when she was still a teenager while working on a campaign for Calvin Klein in the early 1990s.

But Moss recovered and her career has gone from strength to strength. She posed in bunny ears for the cover of Playboy magazine last year.

The Croydon-born catwalk star featured in 18 pages of the January/February issue of the racy magazine, as well as the cover, to celebrate her 40th birthday.

In 2011, she married rocker Jamie Hince in a star-studded ceremony in a rural Cotswolds village, with former partner Jefferson Hack – the father of her daughter Lila – among the guests.
