Drunk sparks Birmingham Airport security alert after climbing fence for ‘better view of planes’

A plane-spotter was arrested just 65ft from Birmingham Airport s runway after climbing an 8ft perimeter fence for a better view of the aircraft.

The drunken aeroplane fan downed two bottles of vodka before sparking a security alert by climbing over the barrier, reports the Birmingham Mail.1

Aftab Ali scaled the fence, which was topped with razor wire, at the height of the holiday season earlier this month. He was arrested only 20 metres short of the runway, where planes were taking off and landing, and told police the fence was in his way and blocking his view. The 23-year-old, of Witton Road, Aston, appeared at Birmingham Magistrates Court to admit a charge under the Aviation Security Act of entering a security restricted area without authority.

He was fined 300, with 115 costs, after the court heard the offence did not carry a prison term. Ed Counsell, prosecuting, said police were alerted at 9.20am on August 12.

There are signs clearly stating it s a restricted area and the fence also indicates that, he said.

He had injuries to his hands and legs from climbing the fence which had barbed wire on the top.

He was clearly drunk, and laughing, saying: I want to see the planes . After being taken to a police station, Ali told officers he had finished a nightshift and drunk two bottles of vodka.

He said he was lying on the grass mound next to the perimeter fence but decided the fence was spoiling his view so climbed over it but then fell over, Mr Counsell said.

Ash Mistry, defending, said Ali had drunk a lot of alcohol in a short space of time .

He then decided to go and watch the planes but, in his intoxicated state, decided to climb the permimeter fence, he said.

It was 8ft tall and had razor wire at the top and, consequently, he suffered cuts to his legs and hands. Magistrates told Ali that his actions could have had extremely serious consequences for passengers if planes had needed to be diverted. Asked after the hearing whether the alert had triggered a security upgrade at the airport s perimeter, a spokeswoman said the area was compliant with requirements set out by the Department for Transport .

She said: We can confirm that a man was apprehended in accordance with Birmingham Airport s security surveillance.

At no time was he close to any aeroplanes, passengers or infrastructure.

Caribbean Carnival security was tightened over ‘acid attack’ fears

An anonymous tip-off that an acid throwing attack was being planned at Nottingham’s Caribbean Carnival1 was behind increased security at the event. After a police tip-off, the organisers of the event on Sunday (August 20) took measures to tighten security around food and drink being brought into the area. The decision not to allow anyone to bring any food or drink into the carnival meant extra queues for people attending, but the event ultimately passed off peacefully.

A statement was released following the carnival by the organisers explaining the situation, which said: “We are very aware of the difficulties people faced on entering the site and we want to apologise for the inconvenience caused.

“However, the police did inform us just before the start of the event that information had come to their attention that an acid attack was being planned at the carnival . This meant that security had to be much tighter around food and drink . Acid can come in many forms, not just a liquid, and this was the reason for the thoroughness of the searches.

“We shared the fact that food and drink was no longer allowed, via our social media, as soon as we could . We acted to keep the public safe and we were successful in this aim.

“Nonetheless, people had to queue for too long and were rightly upset to not be allowed entry with food . We are sincerely sorry to everyone affected – especially those with young children . We know how frustrating this was for you and take full responsibility for the upset this caused.”

A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “Nottinghamshire Police received information from an anonymous source about the Caribbean Carnival.

“The information was uncorroborated, extremely vague and did not relate to the event’s location, as such it was not considered an immediate threat to the event.

“As a precaution, the event organisers were made aware of the information and they took the decision to stop people taking liquids into the event.

“Officers working during the event were also briefed to be vigilant to any suspicious activity.

“The event went ahead without any incident of this nature occurring . The Caribbean Carnival is an important event in Nottingham s multi-cultural calendar and the police have worked very hard providing advice to the event organisers to ensure that the carnival is safe for all to attend.

“Officers had a very enjoyable time at the event interacting with the carnival-goers and supporting the security on site.”

The beefed-up security was not the only hitch on the day . Musician Horace Andy had been due to play but had been too unwell to make his flight from Jamaica to attend. But overall, organisers hailed the event a success.

A spokesman said: “The parade was well received and those who witnessed it on the route got into the carnival vibe; the site layout within the park was much improved; the weather behaved itself until the last 20 minutes and finally the volunteers rallied round to best address the challenges that we faced.

“Thank you so much for supporting the Nottingham Carnival 2017.”
