A plane has flown over Swindon advertising free drinks for ladies at The Bank. 

But owner Manni Madhani says it wasn't him who hired the plane and there are no free drinks. 

He said: "I had nothing to do with that plane. We've got limited spaces and we're conforming to that.

"We did not put that plane up because that would be very irresponsible. There's no way I'm giving free drinks out because we've been shut and I've been making no money.

"I have no idea who did it. It would have cost a few grand, I wouldn't have done it."

Manni added that the restaurant isn't even open to the public today as it is hosting the Swindon Town squad for their promotion party.

He added: "We're private today, we're closed to the public because we have the Swindon Town FC party in and they're their own bubble with no public."

Wiltshire Police have spoken to Manni who said the plane was not his.

A spokesman said: "We have spoken to the owner of The Bank and he has assured us that this incident was not linked to his business."

Advertising company Air Ads confirmed the plane and banner was theirs but could not comment any further.

The business hit the headlines last month as it was believed to be behind the plane that flew over the Manchester City vs Burnley Premier League match with the phrase “White lives matter Burnley” on it.

In response to that incident Blackpool Airport, where the company is based, suspended banner flights.
