Sivakumar, 42, of no fixed abode was said to be a part of the plot that brought the four men from the airfield to Phoenix Parkway, where they were arrested by officers from the National Crime Agency.

He will appear before Northampton Magistrates’ Court in the morning.

A second man, Richard Styles, 52, of no fixed abode, is accused of being the pilot that brought the men into the airfield just outside of Weldon and is due to make his next court appearance in June.
