Italian police arrest man posing as pilot

Police in Italy have arrested a man who has been posing as a commercial pilot.

The man travelled in the cockpit of at least one jet plane wearing a pilot's uniform and using forged identity cards.

He was arrested at Turin Airport after police trailed him for months.

Detectives say the man led them to a garage full of neatly pressed pilot's clothes.
