Tighter airport security follows bomb bid


Passengers on US-bound flights from Britain are facing delays and extra security measures after a man was charged with trying to blow up a plane.

Travellers are undergoing "pat-down" searches before boarding and being restricted to one item of hand luggage.

Simon Calder, The Independent's travel editor, says further restrictions are also in place.
