    A former police officer had her tiny gun necklace confiscated at airport security because it was “too dangerous” and passengers might think it was real.

    Claire Sharp, who used to work for special branch, had the piece of jewellery taken off her as she was travelling to Perugia in Italy from London Stansted Airport on Friday.

    The charm had sentimental value as it was a present from her husband Nigel Greenwood, who died suddenly in 2001, aged just 32 from a heart attack, because of their shared love of shooting and membership of a gundog club.

    How UK airports hire idiots like that for "security" is beyond me. Have they no sense at all?

    This type of behavior is not limited to the UK. You'll find "common sense" is not so common.
