Alcohol arrests in airliner cockpit

Two airline pilots were arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol as they prepared to fly from Glasgow Airport to New York.

Their jet, which was headed for Newark Airport, had started boarding its 141 passengers. It eventually took off at 19:15 with a new flight crew on board.

The men are expected to appear at Paisley Sheriff Court on Monday.
