    UK:TONER BANNED FROM HAND LUGGAGE & UNSECURE CARGO FLIGHTS
    From midnight tonight, toner cartridges larger than 500g will not be allowed as hand luggage on flights departing from the UK, Home Secretary Theresa May told the House of Commons.They will also be banned on cargo flights unless they originate from a regular shipper with security arrangements approved by the Department for Transport.

    She said the ban would initially be in place for a month, with a view to find a long-term security solution for print cartridges.”During that time, we will work closely with the aviation industry, screening equipment manufacturers and others, to devise a sustainable, proportionate, long-term security regime to address the threat,” May said.”Department for Transport officials are already in technical discussions with the industry, and my Right Hon Friend the Secretary of State for Transport will chair a high-level industry meeting later this week to discuss next steps.”The news comes after two explosive devices were discovered inside HP printers on cargo planes at the weekend.
