AN AMERICAN man has been sent back home after he flew into Bristol International Airport hoping to live with his British girlfriend who he met on the Internet.

The 34-year-old told an immigration officer at passport control he was visiting England to stay with an aunt for two weeks.

However, the officer became suspicious after finding out the man did not have a return ticket and he phoned the number given for his aunt.

It turned out it was actually his girlfriend who he had begun a relationship with using the social networking website Facebook. It was revealed they had talked about getting married.
