Passenger blunder sparks a short-lived police search at a UK Airport.
Police at Birmingham Airport were left amused after a passenger made a blunder. The officers began searching for the passenger’s car when they returned to find their car missing.
The Airport police took to Twitter to comment on the amusing search. They tweeted: “Oh and we also reunited a passenger with their suspected stolen car – though to be honest after looking around level 5 of CP1 for 5 minutes we asked to see their parking ticket and told them where car park 3 was!
“So not really a win for us, but made us smile.”
The passenger was probably left mortified over their mistake.
On Monday, a driver at the airport made an expensive mishap and was hit with a £170 fine. The driver had decided to dangerously ditch their car “in the middle of a yellow box junction” at Birmingham airport and head off to pick up a passenger.
Birmingham Airport Police commented: “The driver of this vehicle thought it was acceptable to abandon their vehicle in the middle of a yellow box junction, whilst they went to the terminal to pick up a passenger.
“We’ve removed it to the Police compound for them and the owner now has a £170 fee to pay.”
Using the correct parking would only have cost them £6.
