Airport security guards at Heathrow banned a young mother from taking a children's board game onto flight – because it was called Pass the Bomb.
Katy Reilly said the £19.99 board game was confiscated at Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5 in May after security guards said it could pose a security threat.
"I can't understand it," Miss Reilly, 28, of West Dulwich, South London, told the Press Association. "It's clearly not a weapon."
"They are being over-cautious."
Miss Reilly, a wedding invitations designer, was with her children Sienna, nine, and Harvey, five, when she was stopped at airport security.
The game was in her hand luggage for their holiday in Alicante, Spain.
"It's madness," she said. "It's got a little ticking plastic bomb. It's a timer really, a gimmick."
She added: "We planned to play it in the evenings – we were looking forward to it."
Reilly said they had checked into their flight and were at security when she asked two security guards: "'Will this be ok?' I was joking, obviously, but they looked at it and said 'no'"
"They said it was a potential weapon. I took it to the scanner and another guard said the same thing. He said it could be dangerous."
Heathrow Airport declined to comment on the incident, but confirmed banned products included "replica or imitation explosive devices."
