Aviation personnel who drink on duty face breath testing by police under strict new alcohol rules. Pilots, cabin crew and air traffic controllers are now subject to a limit of 20mg of alcohol in 100ml of blood. Licensed aircraft maintenance engineers now face the same 80mg limit as road users. (BBC)
