Riddle of Brits and secret jet.

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 and Greece is thought to have taken delivery of two.

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.

Police named them as Peter Norris, 52, Antoni Adamiak, 37, Steven Rush, 38, Andrew Jenkins, 32, Christopher Wilson, 46, Wayne Groves, 38, Graham Arnold, 38, Lesley Coppin, 51, Michael Keane, 57, Gary Fagan, 28; Paul Coppin, 45, and Michael Bursell, 47.
