A man, 68, was arrested yesterday after being accused of using the crush for airport lifts as a cover for indecent assault.

A 38-year-old Airport Authority staff member claimed the man had indecently assaulted her in the crowd trying to get into a lift on level five of the passenger terminal.

Confusion over signs has meant the lifts have been much busier than expected as passengers try to get between arrival and departure levels.
