Stereophonics Star Sparks Airport Security Alert

STEREOPHONICS frontman KELLY JONES was stopped from boarding a flight at London's Heathrow Airport, after the gun print on his T-shirt sparked a security alert.

The HAVE A NICE DAY singer was taken aside by over-vigilant officials after his clothes set off a metal detector.

And Jones was left amazed when told his T-shirt - which shows a pistol with a flame coming out of the top - was unsuitable for flying in.

Jones explains, "I beeped as I went through the metal detector, so they took my belt, watch and phone off.

"The guy takes me aside and says, 'You know you're not supposed to wear that.' I said, 'Not supposed to wear what?' I honestly didn't have a clue."

A security man then pointed to the star's T-shirt.

Jones adds, "I was like, 'What am I going to do with a gun on a T-shirt?'

"So he called his superior over. By this point I was like 'You're having a laugh, mate.' He started asking me if it was embossed with anything, but it wasn't.

"I thought he was going to ask me to strip down and change. I mean, it's not as if my T-shirt was loaded."
