    One for the vapers - E-cigs and juice

    Travelling to Europe and need to know if UK customs (Heathrow) allow you to bring a personal supply of e-juice into the country. I know there are e-cig shops in London, so possibly there should be no drama. Should I declare it in any case?

    As you cannot take a regular bottle of after shave, moisturisers and aerosol deodorants in one's carry on, will these items survive a long haul flight without bursting, spilling?
