A man has appeared in court after he got drunk and managed to sneak onto an empty plane at Birmingham Airport.
Lee Jezard from Worcester claimed in a press interview he had missed his flight to Ibiza last month, but the court was told he was never booked on any flight.
Security cameras showed the 22-year-old crawling through the opening of a baggage carousel, getting on to the airport's tarmac and then getting aboard the plane.
He was later discovered in the toilet by cleaners and claimed to be the co-pilot.
His solicitor said his client "really had very little idea how he arrived at the airport" after going on a drinking binge with friends in Birmingham city centre.
He was ordered to pay a fine, compensation and costs totalling £621.
