Drunk honeymooner is 'sorry and ashamed', says brother

A honeymooner who became drunk and aggressive on a flight to Cuba says he is "sorry and ashamed", according to his brother.

Mohammed Khelya, from Blackburn, was taken off the flight from Manchester on Monday, after the plane was grounded in Bermuda.

He appeared in court and was fined $3,000 (£1,900).

His brother, Minhaz Khelya, told BBC Radio Lancashire his brother had shamed his family, but the incident had been blown out of proportion.

He added his sister-in-law, who returned to Britain on the next available flight from Cuba, was supporting his brother.
