US and UK flight ban on electronic devices explained
The United States and United Kingdom have announced that laptops, e-readers and almost any other electronic device that is not a phone will be banned from cabin luggage on some flights.
The US rule applies to 10 airports, the UK to six - including Turkey and middle-eastern countries.
Daniel Sandford explains why phones are allowed when bigger devices aren't - and what might have led to the ban.
