A controversial ban on carry-on laptops and tablets on flights from the Middle East to the United States and Britain has gone into into effect.

Passengers were told to stash their electronics on direct flights to the UK from Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia, Lebanon, Jordan and Saudi Arabia on Saturday.

They described the ban as a ‘hassle’ and claimed boarding was a ‘massive, slow process’ as airport employees were checking all carry-on luggage.

Laptops, iPads, Kindles and game consoles have been outlawed from hand luggage on services into Britain from those six countries amid fears terrorists have perfected a new type of airline bomb.
