London - A Toy Story figurine had its fake gun confiscated at the airport. 

The popular children's toy based on the character Woody from the hit film franchise wears cowboy boots and a waistcoat and this particular model had a western style gun in his holster, but security officers at Heathrow Airport considered the figure a safety risk and decided to confiscate the tiny plastic weapon. 

The toy was at the airport with its owner's father - who takes the figure with him all over the world to take photos for his son - and he was left stunned when the airport staff removed Woody's gun.

He posted a picture of the incident on social networking site Reddit alongside the caption: "I have travelled the world with Toy Story's Woody, taking pics for my son. At Heathrow, security just confiscated his ''weapon'', keep the world safe boys'."
