Heather Mills Underwent Security Check

By Staff

Stars may get a special treatment everywhere but when it comes to nations security, no one is spared. Heather Mills faced such a consequence recently. Her false leg was checked for explosives at London"s Heathrow airport after she set off the security alarm.

Ex-wife of Paul McCartney was at Heathrow to fly to the US and Mills was accompanying her. But no sooner did the alarm set off and Mill was asked to roll up her trouser legs and her prosthetic leg was swabbed in public.

But Mills took the incident quite sportingly. She underwent the security requirements without any complain.

The spokesperson for airport said, "She was swabbed because something set off the alarm in the metal detector archway. Staff could not see inside the leg so it was swabbed instead. This would be the same protocol if a passenger had a cast on a broken arm or leg."
