‘Flying without ticket easier than homework’

world Updated: Jul 26, 2012 23:34 IST

An 11-year-old boy, who flew from Manchester to Rome without a passport, ticket or boarding pass triggering a scare ahead of the Olympics, said it was “easier than doing my homework, even easier than computer games.”

Liam Corcoran-Fort, who got through a security screen by mingling with families passing through a terminal of Manchester Airport on Tuesday was discovered by co-passengers while the Jet2 flight to Rome was in mid-air.

Speaking about his adventure which exposed shocking security lapses at the airport ahead of Olympic Games in London, Liam said no one asked him anything when he climbed on to the plane looking for a loo after slipping away from his mother outside the Manchester Airport.

Liam’s mother, who thought her son had been abducted, said that more than four hours after he vanished, police searching for the boy told her that they had found her son in Rome.
