Co-pilot arrested on suspicion of being over alcohol-limit

The co-pilot of a passenger jet has been arrested in London on suspicion of being over the legal alcohol limit.

He was detained following a tip-off shortly before take-off at Heathrow.

The Miami-bound Virgin Atlantic flight was consequently delayed for three and a half hours while a replacement crew was found.

The plane's first officer's been released on police bail but remains suspended from duty.
