Julie Birkett, 48, of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, finds herself out of a job and facing misdemeanour charges after performing an aviation function whilst unfit through drink.

The former EasyJet crew member was arrested and escorted off a plane after allegedly being drunk on duty during a two-and-a-half-hour flight from Alicante-Elche Airport in Spain just before 11.40 pm local time and arrived into Newcastle Airport at around 1.10 am last Saturday morning.
