Belgian pilot charged over Albanians at Kent aerodrome

A pilot from Belgium has been charged with assisting illegal immigration after four Albanian nationals arrived at an aerodrome in Kent.

Two adults and two children were detained by UK Border Agency officers on Saturday at Headcorn Aerodrome.

A 34-year-old light aircraft pilot was subsequently arrested and will appear at Canterbury Magistrates' Court later.

An agency spokesman said the Albanians are currently being assessed with help of social services.
