'Spy' Brits secret pics.

Byline: STEPHEN WHITE

TWELVE British planespotters accused of spying in Greece may have accidentally taken pictures of a top secret plane.

Yesterday the group, plus two Dutch enthusiasts, were remanded in custody and told by a judge some of them could face further charges.

Police are said to have found dozens of snaps of an EMB 145, a variation of the Brazilian-made Embraer ERJ-145 jet.

The aircraft has been modified to include an airborne early warning radar system.

The planespotters are also said to have been found with pictures of a military airfield.

Members of the group from Touchdown Tours in Suffolk will appear in court next Monday.
