Stephen Prosser said he suffered a pelvic injury and nerve damage in his neck on the 13-hour journey from Bangkok to London in January 2016.

Mr Prosser had previously told Pontypridd County Court that he was "Pinned against the side of the cabin" after a 23-stone man "Wedged" himself into the seat next to him.

A British Airways spokesman said: "We are pleased that the court agreed that Mr Prosser had room to fly comfortably."
