A feline stowaway gives airport security paws for thought


Pet cat found in owners hand luggage

A household pet was a whisker away from being taken on holiday before being found in its owners hand luggage.  

A forgotten bottle of water lodged in the depths of your hand luggage, long-worn jewellery or an iPhone - objects that often catch people out in airport security.

A local couple recently defied those norms.

While going through Ronaldsway, Voirrey and Nick Coole were taken into a side-room by security who revealed the couple's cat had stowed away in their hand luggage.

Seemingly unwilling to let her owners go away without her, Candy was found in the couples suitcase by security.

She was then picked up by friends and Voirrey and Nick caught their flight, thanking security for their help.
