Sorry, cant find it in English but the link, in Spanish, says a Drunk & foul smelling Englishman was sent back to the UK after giving out 52,000 Euros in travellers checks and cash at the Palma airport to other travellers from Manchester...

The English translation is on the Yahoo UK News website.I was a bit worried as I fly to Majorca from Manchester and age 59 is (about) my vintage.

a)Me drunk? Occasionally.

b)Me foul-smelling? Only occasionally and usually after a) above.

c)Doling out cash and travellers cheques to complete strangers? No way not even when totally a).

That's how I know it wasn't me.

And I have 20-odd alibis.The guys I played cricket with in Cheshire at the weekend.
