Canberra airport

The New Daily has a bizarre story on charges laid today against Malcolm Turnbull’s staff member Stephen Ellis.

The Australian Federal Police has confirmed Stephen John Ellis, 48, was wearing a bondage mask and allegedly engaged in an obscene act in a public area of the airport shortly before his arrest.

The ACT Magistrates Court heard on Friday he was allegedly in possession of LSD and amphetamines.
