There's no escaping it: London has a reputation for being a hard drinking city, particularly on a school night when you've got to be up early at work the next morning. Yet while most of us in our paper-pushing gigs won't exactly be in trouble if we turn up a little soused, the same can't be said for the American Airlines pilot who showed up at Heathrow for his flight while still inebriated. The pilot, who was due to fly a Boeing 777 to Chicago, was breathlysed after airport security personnel spotted his erratic behaviour, and subsequently arrested when he failed the test.
