Police were called to an incident at Invercargill airport on Saturday night.

Acting Senior Sergeant Wing-wah Ng said an elderly passenger was returning after a cruise ship holiday. A family member and close friend were disputing who the passenger would go home with and the elderly person fell to the ground but was not hurt, he said.

The elderly traveller agreed to go home with family and would then see the close friend the next day.
