An 11-year-old boy boarded a plane from Manchester to Rome on his own without a passport, tickets or boarding pass.There are some embarrassed folks in the British travel industry today - and apparently even a number of suspended employees.
He mingled with families to get through checks in Terminal 1 on Tuesday. He was found mid-air on the Jet2 plane after passengers became suspicious.
We're sure none of our grandchildren would try this trick, with the possible exception of two-year-old Blane.
You can read the BBC's report of the escapade here, but please don't read it to Blane.
