See SWNS story SWCLOTHES: A holidaymaker dodged paying £46 for baggage on an EasyJet flight by taking matters into his own hands in the middle of Gatwick Airport – and putting on a week’s worth of winter clothes. Matt Botten, 32, spent about an hour putting on all his warm winter clothes before checking in on a flight to Iceland because he was told his hand luggage was too big for the cabin. Matt, from Cardiff, said that despite the ‘one hour embarrassment of looking like the Michelin man’, it was worth it. TV producer Matt Botten and girlfriend Abigail White, 31, a primary school teacher from Surrey, arrived at Gatwick Airport ready for their one week holiday to Reykjavik, Iceland on Saturday.
