Wish you were her.

BUNGLING airport staff in Britain and Spain allowed a bald man to travel using his blonde girlfriend's passport.

Barber Neil Clulow, 50, failed to spot he had partner Karen Clift's documents when he took a 7.30am flight.

He flew from Birmingham for a three-night lads' trip to Benidorm to celebrate pal Carl Fentham's 50th birthday last month.

Grandad-of-five Neil, who also has a goatee beard, flashed his passport to Monarch Airlines' staff on boarding and breezed through passport control at Alicante. He only realised the error only when he and his pals were comparing passport pictures.

Neil, from Halesowen, West Mids, said: "I can't believe it, especially after the trouble with that missing jet."

He spent PS70 to have his own passport sent out to Spain.

Monarch Airlines yesterday said it had launched an investigation.
