“Red alert – can you get extra security over here? A jar of Branston Pickle has just been found in a passenger’s hand baggage. Yes… Branston Pickle. I have confiscated it. Why? Because it’s a liquid. Or a gel? Well it depends how thickly you like it spread.”
Yes it’s true. The Moodie Blog can reveal that a jar of the UK’s best-loved sweet pickle (whose fans include Catherine Zeta-Jones and Naomi Campbell) was among the items confiscated by security at Heathrow T4 on Sunday night.
Quite why the Branston devotee was taking the jar onboard is unknown but if it had been used for ulterior motives inflight the cabin crew would certainly have smelled trouble first.
