Travelling through UK airports with liquids

Taking liquids through security
There are restrictions on the amount of liquids you can take in your hand luggage. If possible, pack liquids in your hold baggage (luggage that you check in).
If you do take liquids in your hand luggage then:
·         containers must hold no more than 100ml
·         containers should be in a single, transparent, resealable plastic bag, which holds no more than a litre and measures approximately 20cm x 20cm
·         contents must fit comfortably inside the bag so it can be sealed
·         the bag must not be knotted or tied at the top
·         it is limited to 1 plastic bag per person
·         you must show the bag at the airport security point
Liquid in containers larger than 100ml (except those for medical purposesspecial dietary requirements or baby food) can’t go through security even if the container is only part full.
Liquids include:
·         all drinks, including water, soup and syrups
·         cosmetics and toiletries, including creams, lotions, oils, perfumes, mascara and lipsticks
·         sprays, including shaving foam, hairspray and spray deodorants
·         pastes, including toothpaste
·         gels, including hair and shower gel
·         contact lens solution
·         any other solutions and items of similar consistency
Airport security staff won’t let through anything they consider dangerous - even if it’s normally allowed in hand luggage.
