T-shirt a risk to air security
A TOURIST was told to turn his T-shirt inside-out at an airport — as a picture of two guns on it was deemed a SECURITY RISK.
Dave Osborne, 21, was bound for Newark, New Jersey, when guards hauled him out of the queue for his Guns N Rollers T-shirt.
They told him the two pistols on the front could constitute a security risk and upset passengers.
He was ordered to turn his top inside out before boarding.
The design engineer from Lichfield, Staffs, said: “I am all for extra security but this was just plain stupid.”
Last night bosses at Birmingham International Airport apologised and said security guards “over-reacted”.
MUSICIANS say a ban on taking instruments as hand luggage will sound the death knell for international concert tours. BBC Symphony Orchestra conductor Mark Elder said performers face “enormous difficulty”.
