A BOOZY mother-of-two faces jail for punching and kicking a member of British Airways cabin crew while in the air.

Emma Kate Langford, of Huish Lane, Old Basing, appeared at Ealing Magistrates Court where she pleaded guilty to three counts of assault.

The 47-year-old had been travelling from London Heathrow to Cape Town on December 6 last year when she assaulted three members of cabin crew staff.

As reported in the Metro, the incident first begun when she approached the workers 30 minutes after take-off and told them she was thirsty and had been waiting for a drink.

The court heard how Langford “raised her voice and was agitated” before she was told not to talk to the crew in such a way.

It was also reported at during the altercation Langford confronted the crew manager with her ‘chest puffed out’, telling the them she had paid £4,000 for her seat.

The court heard how the mother had pushed a member of the cabin to the floor, before assaulting two more members of staff.

She was finally restrained by an off-duty police officer and was carried off the plane once it touched down in Cape Town.

Langford was due to stand trial after first denying three charges of assault but changed her pleas to guilty when appearing at the court on Tuesday (December 3).

This comes after the 47-year-old had pleaded guilty to a drink driving charge in North Waltham.

Langford appeared at Basingstoke Magistrates Court on November 27, where she pleaded guilty to driving a motor vehicle, namely a BMW, in North Waltham while under the influence of alcohol on September 15, 2019.

For the drink driving offence she was given a community order and ordered to pay £90 victim surcharge and £85 costs.

She was also banned from driving for two years and four months.

Langford will appear at Isleworth Crown Court on January 3 to be sentenced for the three assaults.
