Lucy Jones, 29, and Chaz Mather, 26, will be handing out 100 "Pussy Protectors" at Heathrow Airport over the US election, following footage showing Trump talking about grabbing women "by the pussy".

The release of the tape from 2005 caused outrage in the US and beyond as Trump was heard discussing his exploits with Access Hollywood talk show host Billy Bush in 2005.

They describe the simple device, which we're assuming is not supposed to be used seriously, as "a pant attachment that will protect women from the unwanted advances of presidential candidates or anyone else who tries to have a grab".

It's a tongue-in-cheek approach to a serious issue. "We were just reading all the stuff about how sexist he has been and in particular the grabbing stories and we wanted to make a difference, but in a humorous way," says Lucy.

The pair have already been down to Heathrow to hand out the devices - which could probably go through security in your hold baggage - to passengers and airline staff alike. "They loved it, thought it was really funny," according to Lucy.

If you are travelling to the US via London Heathrow tomorrow, keep an eye out. The pair will be handing out the devices close to check-in desks.
