The parking official was a tit, a person possibly on the minimum wage trying to stop someone who hadnít paid the park charge risking serious injury , just take his number and leave it to the management

A teacher who drove at a Manchester Airport parking official in a row over drop-off costs has been spared jail by a judge who said the fee was "unjust".

Graham Benbow, 55, of Stockton Heath, was given a six-month suspended sentence after admitting dangerous driving at Manchester Crown Court.

Judge Bernard Lever described the drop-off fees as an "absolute disgrace".

Manchester Airport said the judge was "irresponsible" and the outcome showed "complete disregard" for its staff.

The court heard the parking attendant ended up on the car bonnet and was driven along a road for several hundred yards when he tried to stop Benbow leaving.

Benbow had refused to pay the fee - £3 for five minutes or £4 for 10 minutes - and said there were no clear signs indicating that he should.

He reversed his car to look at the signs but then drove towards one of the barriers when he noticed it was open.

The staff member placed himself against the barrier to stop him, but Benbow continued, the prosecution said.

The crime,driving out of the Airport drop off without paying.   A worker tried to stop him and was carried hundreds of yards on the car bonnet
The judge said it was an absolute disgrace that you cannot take people to the Airport without paying an extraordinary amount
Mr Benbow said he did not know of the charge and didn't see a sign.
