What tops the hand-luggage hit list

London is a very popular choice for a city break, so it's well worth noting that staff at London City Airport are warning passengers to be mindful of any souvenirs they plan on buying.

In the first six months of this year, 72 snow globes were confiscated from the hand luggage of passengers departing from London City, making it the most confiscated non-food related item. The top 10 items which were confiscated from passengers from January to June this year at London City Airport were:

1. Jams and preserves (including lots of lemon curd)

2. Snow globes

3. Wine

4. Vodka

5. Body lotion/hand cream

6. Whiskey

7. Tennis racquets

8. Scissors

9. Footballs

10. Champagne.

But don't despair, we'll get real snow yet.
