On at least two occasions in June 2016, NET staff had to escort the brothers off the tram for not having purchased tickets.

On one occasion they were each given £50 fixed penalty notices, the city council said.


“These brothers caused immense alarm, harassment and distress to passengers," councillor, Nicola Heaton, said.

If either of the brothers rides the tram in the next two years they risk facing a five-year prison sentence.
