Glasgow Airport Guide

Weapons campaign launched


Passengers flying from Glasgow Airport are being warned not to bring back illegal weapons from their summer breaks, the Evening Times reports. Officers from Strathclyde Police's Violence Reduction Unit joined staff from the UK Border Agency and airport to launch a crackdown on passengers bringing dangerous items back into the UK.

Jim Gilfeather from the UK Border Agency told the newspaper that a host of weapons are regularly seized by officers at Glasgow Airport. He said: 'We see a variety of items, from knuckle dusters, batons and flick knives to CS gas spray. These things can seem attractive and it might seem like a good idea but it can quickly backfire when you fly back into Glasgow.’

He added that ignorance of what can and cannot be brought back will not be a defence. He said: ‘If you're caught and charged you face anything from a fine to 4 years in prison. A passenger was recently fined £4000 for trying to bring weapons in to Scotland within the last few weeks.'
