Weekend at Bernies…airborne?

Women try to take body on plane at Liverpool airport

Police have arrested two women after they tried to take the body of a dead relative onto a plane at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

Staff became suspicious when the women tried to check in the man, who was wearing sunglasses, for a flight to Berlin on Saturday.

The man is thought to have died the previous day and was in a wheelchair.

The women, aged 41 and 66, were arrested on suspicion of failing to give notification of a death.

The pair, who are German nationals but live in Oldham, have been released on bail until 1 June, police said.

Officers are investigating reports that the body had been taken to the airport by taxi from Oldham, a spokesman said. </em>

Ha! As long as the body stayed quiet, I wouldn’t care!
