Airport panty thief facing jail
A 27-year-old man has admitted stealing women's underwear from cases while working as a baggage handler at Stansted Airport.

Tristan Self, of Silver End, Essex, took more than 300 pairs of pants before colleagues became suspicious, magistrates heard earlier this year.

After a hearing on Thursday, Judge Peter Fenn freed Self on bail but said he was likely to face jail.

He is due to be sentenced on 29 August at Chelmsford Crown Court.
