Cause of airports' 100ml bottle limit.

THE plot is responsible for restrictions on how much liquid passengers can take on flights.

At first, a complete ban on liquids was brought in on August 10, 2006 - the day after the terror plot gang was arrested - but this was later relaxed.

Current rules state travellers can only carry 100ml containers on to an aircraft and the bottles or tubs must fit into a sealable bag measuring 20cm by 20cm. Airlines and BAA have called for further easing of the rules.
