TWO men from Bolton who disrupted a flight from Poland to Manchester by drunken behaviour have been jailed.

Friends Daniel Keigher and Daniel Naylor headed away for a trip away together in September this year.

But the pair got into trouble on the way home when they became disruptive after learning only one alcoholic drink would be available for each customer, Manchester Magistrates' Court heard yesterday.

Prosecutor Paul Sumner outlined how the pair conducted themselves.

He said: "They were on board a flight from Poland to Manchester Airport due to land at 10pm.

"The defendants were sat with a group of people, approximately four.

"The cabin crew had made a decision to serve one alcoholic beverage to each passenger to prevent issues.

"Naylor wanted two alcoholic drinks, he immediately asked for a bottle of champagne, that was refused."

He added after Keigher was refused a drink he became disruptive and began shouting.

The cabin crew became concerned about Naylor and asked for his details for a report which he refused before bear hugging a member of staff.

He added: "Both males were handed a final final warning letter, both stated they couldn't read it because they were dyslexic."

They both refused to hand over their passports, stating they didn't care if they were arrested or if the flight was diverted.

They were met by officers at Manchester Airport.

Keigher, 32, and Naylor, 29, admitted the offence at an earlier date and appeared in court to be sentenced.

Representing the pair, defence agent Emma Hassell said they were not alcoholics and were both hard working family men.

She said: "They had consumed alcohol but not so much they were refused entry. They accept their behaviour, they had had a drink, the bear hug was meant jokingly not threateningly.

"Mr Naylor is a subcontractor, Mr Keigher is a joiner.

"They would not be able to do this job of they were dependent on alcohol, they both work very hard."

Imposing a sentence, district judge Bernard Begley said there was no alternative to custody.

He said: "You have both stable family lives and gainful employment, that falls in your favour."

"The appeal court as recently as 2017 that those who become drunk on an aircraft must expect an immediate custodial sentence. He jailed Keigher, of Turner Bridge Road in Bolton, and Naylor, of Wasdale Avenue in Bolton, for 18 weeks and ordered them to pay compensation of £75 to the flight attendant.
