Security Breach at Gatwick Airport: Man Boards Plane Without Passport or Boarding Pass

In a shocking security lapse at Gatwick Airport, a man managed to evade all security checks and board a Norwegian Air flight bound for Copenhagen without showing a passport or boarding pass. The incident, which occurred on February 5th, marks the second such security breach in a week, raising serious concerns about airport safety protocols.

The unidentified British man successfully made his way onto the Boeing 737 aircraft in an attempt to reach the Danish capital undetected. However, vigilant crew members became suspicious before take-off and promptly alerted authorities, resulting in the man being escorted off the plane by police.

This incident comes just a week after revelations that another individual flew from the UK to New York without proper documentation. The recurring security breaches are expected to prompt renewed scrutiny from the Home Office regarding airport security measures.

According to sources, the man bypassed check-in procedures at Gatwick around noon, proceeding directly to the security area and boarding gates. It is believed that he “tailgated” other passengers at security and passport checkpoints, managing to reach his seat on the plane without raising suspicion.

Passengers were temporarily evacuated from the aircraft for a security search following the man’s removal. A Gatwick spokesman emphasized that the individual had undergone security screening and posed no immediate threat. Sussex Police confirmed their involvement, describing the incident as a medical concern and stating that no criminal charges were brought.

This alarming breach underscores the urgent need for a thorough review of airport security protocols to prevent similar incidents in the future.

Just days before this incident, Craig Sturt, 46, also exploited security vulnerabilities at Heathrow Airport, boarding a flight to New York without proper documentation. Sturt’s actions have sparked investigations into security procedures at Heathrow.
