SUPERMODEL Naomi Campbell will have to do 200 hours of community service after she admitted kicking and spitting at police officers in a rage on board an aircraft waiting to take off.

The star appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates' Court in London this morning and pleaded guilty to two counts of assaulting a police officer, one count of disorderly conduct likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress and using threatening, abusive words or behaviour to cabin crew.

The court heard how Campbell screamed abuse at the captain of the British Airways flight after she was told one of her bags had gone missing during the luggage problems at the newly-opened Heathrow Terminal 5 in April.

The 38-year-old demanded that the captain get off the plane to find her bag before going “berserk” and lashing out at officers as they tried to remove her from the plane.
