New scanners could end airline liquids ban

Devices should be installed at every airport in Britain and across the EU by the end of next April, after they were approved by the Department for Transport.
Although passengers will still have to remove bottles from their cabin luggage for inspection, they will no longer be banned from carrying containers of fluid larger than 100ml.
This means that travellers will no longer face the frustration of having expensive toiletries confiscated at security gates.
They should also be allowed to bring their own water bottles onto planes.
A complete ban on carrying liquids onto an aircraft was introduced in August 2006 after a terrorist plot to down transatlantic aircraft, by mixing the liquid components of a bomb on board, was thwarted.
