CABIN CREW staff on flights to and from Alicante-Elche airport are all too used to getting drunken abuse from passengers, but there was a fresh twist last weekend, as an Easyjet cabin attendant was arrested and escorted off a plane at Newcastle for allegedly being drunk during the flight.

The captain of the Easyjet flight alerted air traffic control as the plane from Alicante-Elche airport was about to land in the north-east of England, and police carted off 48-year-old Julie Birkett from Huddersfield for being under the influence of alcohol.

Birkett faces an appearance in front of North Tyneside magistrates early next month, and she has already been sacked by Easyjet.
