A NORTH Berwick man who admitted behaving aggressively towards cabin crew at Edinburgh Airport has been handed an absolute discharge.

Steven Street, of Windygates Road, behaved in a threatening or abusive manner toward staff members while on board a British Airways flight and on an apron stand at the airport.

He also shouted, swore and acted aggressively during an incident at the airport on December 15 last year.

Street, 51, appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Wednesday, where he was handed an absolute discharge, effectively meaning his conviction has not been recorded and no punishment was handed out.
