Christmas crackers ban....and NO this is not from Spoof.......

Holiday travellers will not be allowed to take Christmas crackers on planes for security reasons.

Staff at Stansted airport in Essex said dangerous items might be hidden inside and crackers could frighten other passengers if they went bang.

A spokesman said: "We won't allow them in hand luggage, basically because we can't see what's inside we would have to take them apart and that would defeat the object. And most airlines don't want crackers in packed luggage. A bang from a cracker could cause alarm on a plane. Our message is don't bring Christmas crackers if you're flying over the holiday period."
