The captain of a Pakistan International Airlines flight from Leeds Bradford Airport to Islamabad is currently being held on suspicion of being drunk while in charge of a plane.
The 54-year-old pilot, from Pakistan, was arrested around 10 o'clock last night apparently while making pre-flight checks in the cockpit of the Airbus 310 aircraft.
All 180 passengers on board at the time had to be taken off the plane and put up overnight in a hotel.
The pilot is currently being held on suspicion of carrying out an activity ancillary to an aviation function while impaired by drink.
