A 20-year-old woman has been remanded in police custody after trying to travel to France with forged documents from Paphos airport, police said on Monday.

On Sunday afternoon, the woman presented a Belgian identity card at departures, where the photo on the card was discovered to be different to her appearance.

When interrogated, she confessed that the travel documents were not hers and was then charged with impersonation.

She was taken to Paphos District Court which issued a two-day remand order.
