    Two women from Oldham tried to smuggle a dead relative on to a plane at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

    The corpse was pushed in on a wheelchair – complete with sunglasses – to try to fool staff at the check in desk at JLA.

    But as his two companions attempted to check him in for a flight to Berlin on Saturday, staff became suspicious and alerted the authorities.

    The two women were arrested after their bizarre attempt was uncovered.

    Women try to take body on plane at Liverpool airport

    The two women tried to check in the body on Saturday
    Police have arrested two women after they tried to take the body of a dead relative onto a plane at Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

    Staff became suspicious when the women tried to check in the man, who was wearing sunglasses, for a flight to Berlin on Saturday.

    The man is thought to have died the previous day and was in a wheelchair.

    The women, aged 41 and 66, were arrested on suspicion of failing to give notification of a death.

    The pair, who are German nationals but live in Oldham, have been released on bail until 1 June, police said.

    Officers are investigating reports that the body had been taken to the airport by taxi from Oldham, a spokesman said.

    Very true MHD89. Happens in Liverpool and no-one had nicked the wheels from the wheelchair. Must be something of a first.
