A drunken woman looking for a place to sleep slipped past security and onto an aircraft at Aberdeen airport in Scotland where she dozed unnoticed for several hours, sparking a review of security.

The British Airports Authority (BAA) said on Monday it had launched a full investigation after the woman - reported by a newspaper to be a scantily clad stripper - scaled a fence and boarded a private jet.

"The young woman was found aboard an aircraft last Thursday and an investigation is under way," a BAA spokesman said.

The Sun newspaper said 22-year-old Soraya Wilson was discovered eight hours after she passed out in the plane's cockpit.

She was cautioned but not charged.
