Staff at Manchester Airport have seized dozens of weapons from passengers this year, including knives, guns and knuckle-dusters.

Border Force officials are asking holiday-makers to think carefully about any "souvenirs" they bring back to the UK.

Many wrongly believe the items are legal here, because they are on open sale in resorts in destinations like Spain, Turkey and Bulgaria.
