Pilots Arrested On Suspicion Of Being Drunk

Two pilots have been arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of alcohol shortly before they were due to fly a transatlantic passenger jet.

 

Concerns over the pair's behaviour were raised at Glasgow Airport shortly before the Air Transat A310 with 250 passengers on board was due to depart for Toronto on Monday afternoon.

Officers arrested the men, aged 37 and 39, on suspicion of being "impaired through alcohol" before they were due to take off at 1pm.

Police Scotland said the pair will appear in custody at Paisley Sheriff Court later.
