A man was arrested under the Terrorism Act and issued with a life ban from Doncaster’s airport after joking on Twitter that he would blow it “sky high” if his flight was delayed.
Paul Chambers made the comment on January 6 after snowfall threatened to delay his plans to travel to Ireland on January 15.
“Robin Hood airport is closed,” he wrote. “You’ve got a week and a bit to get your shit together, otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky high!!”
But while most of his friends enjoyed the joke, someone clearly didn’t and alerted the police, who arrived on Mr Chambers’ doorstep on January 13.
