TWO women who have been charged after incursion in a private area of Stansted Airport were denied bail and remanded into custody today. 

Cole Macdonald and Jennifer Kowalski were denied bail and remanded into custody during a hearing at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court earlier today.

Both women denied three charges and will next appear at Chelmsford Crown Court on July 22. 

Essex Police's investigation was launched early on June 20 after police were alerted to reports of two people having gained access to an area which is away from the runway and main passenger terminal.

Then damage was caused to two aircraft.

Within 9 minutes of the call being made, Essex Police officers both arrived on the scene and arrested two people - due to "preparedness for incidents of this kind".

Cole Macdonald, 22, of Baker Street, Brighton, and Jennifer Kowalski, 28, of Williamson Avenue, Dumbarton are charged with criminal damage valued at more than £5,000, aggravated trespass, and interfering with national infrastructure.
