On the list of things you should never, ever bring to an airport this definitely ranks pretty highly. A passenger at London Stansted airport now faces charges after carrying an iPhone case shaped like a gun.
Essex Police shared an image of the phone case on Twitter, which they confiscated from the passenger, suggesting that they could also face a public order offense for carrying an imitation firearm.

They later added an image of the phone case itself, which was discovered during a routine security search. Whether or not the passenger made their flight is unclear, but one thing’s for sure: they’ll think a little more carefully next time they select an iPhone case!
