UK: UK CAA issues lithium battery warning

The UK Civil Aviation Authority has issued a warning against sending lithium batteries by airmail or taking them on board flights.

Lithium batteries – which are used in a number of portable electronic devices, such as digital cameras and laptop computers – pose “a growing safety concern to the aviation industry”, said the regulator.

“Over the coming weeks many people will be sending gifts in the post or taking them in their luggage as they fly off for Christmas,” said Geoff Leach, manager of the CAA’s dangerous goods office.
