Chris O'Dowd hits out at Gatwick airport security for 'frisking' his three-month-old baby
Irish actor Chris O'Dowd has hit out at Gatwick airport security for 'patting down' his newborn son.
The Moone Boy star was travelling out of the London airport with three-month-old son Art and wrote of his upset on Twitter.
"Thanks Gatwick security! Some might think body-searching a baby and binning his bottle was over zealous and weird, but not me," he wrote.
He and his wife of two years, Dawn O'Porter welcomed their first child together in January.

And the pair enjoyed some nights out in London before returning to their adopted home of Los Angeles.
The 36-year-old tv presenter recently gushed that motherhood is "really lovely".
"I have to say, I love it. Art's given me a really lovely start," she said. "It's hard work and bloody relentless, but he's a really nice baby. I feel very lucky to have a healthy child.
"I was very emotionally ready to be a mum, so by the time he flopped out - well, didn't quite flop out - I was raring to go. He's very cute."
