UK passengers flying to the US face a ban on carrying laptops in their hand luggage.
According to a report in The Times, US President Donald Trump is considering banning large electronic devices in the cabin on US-bound flights from Europe.
In March, the UK followed the US in issuing the ban from mainly Middle East countries due to increased security measures.
Passengers are not allowed in the cabin with phones, laptops or tablets larger than 16cm in length, 9.3cm width and 1.5cm in depth.
A source told the newspaper the US was considering the plans but no final decision has been made. “As with everything from Trump’s America, there are conflicting reports about where, when and what,” a Whitehall insider said.
A US official suggested that no announcement was due but said a move by US Homeland Security was not far off. They confirmed that Britain was on the list of countries examined for restrictions on electronic devices.
