A drunk airline passenger has been told by a judge he committed a dangerous offence when he stole life jackets from an easyJet flight.

Alexander Bolam was flying from Bristol to Newcastle Airport after drinking 10 bottles of larger last month.

The 23-year-old took four life-jackets from under the seats when the plane came into land.

The theft was only discovered when air hostesses checked under the seats before the next flight.
