A pilot has been arrested on suspicion of being drunk, minutes before he was due to take off from Newquay.

It was one of the FlyBe routes to Gatwick on Wednesday morning.

The pilot was taken off for a breath test just before 9am after another member of the crew got in touch with police.

A 48 year old man from Crediton has been released on bail.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "A 48-year old man from Copplestone, Crediton, was arrested at Newquay Airport this morning, Wednesday October 29, 2014, shortly before 9am on suspicion of being over the drink drive limit.

"The man was taken to Newquay Police station.

"He was later released on police bail until 8 December 2014."

In a statement, the company said: "Flybe can confirm that one of its pilots volunteered to help the police with their inquiries at Newquay Airport yesterday.

"The airline is not able to comment further while the police investigation is taking place."
