Woman claims airport security confiscated her necklace because it looked like a gun and was ‘potentially dangerous’

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.

It is around an inch long and Sharp wears it everyday in memory of her late husband who she described at the time as her “best friend.”

When she returned Sharp discovered she would be charged £8 (about $11) for “lost property services” despite being told it would be free.

The mom-of-three, who is now a company director for her own dog food company, says she has travelled through other airports in the U.K., abroad and even Stansted in the past, and not had the gold pendant removed.

She said: “I was being searched by a female security officer and she saw my necklace and said ‘this might be a problem’.

“She then called over a male officer who asked me to take it off so he could look at it.

“I explained it was just a charm, that it had been bought for me by my late husband and that it had been through airport security on loads of occasions – including Stansted – without issue.

“He then took it off to ask his supervisor and came back saying it would need to be confiscated as it was an imitation firearm.
