The dimensions of each item of hand baggage carried by a passenger through the airport security search point must not exceed a length of 56cm; a width of 45cm; and a depth of 25cm - including wheels, handles, side pockets, etc.

Government authorities in many countries have now defined restrictions on the type and quantity of liquids that may be carried in hand baggage through the airport, or on flights arriving into or departing from their country.

The EU rules on liquids apply to all air passengers traveling from any EU airport, including UK airports, as well those traveling from Albania, Kosovo, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Switzerland and Ukraine, regardless of their destination. Limited quantities of liquids, gels or pastes must be held in individual containers not exceeding 100ml (approximately 3.5 fl. oz). This may include:
Shampoo, Creams, Hair gel, hair spray; Suntan lotions; Toothpaste; Liquid or aerosol deodorants; Perfumes; cosmetics such as mascara and lip gloss; water and other drinks, soups and syrups; and other items of similar consistency.

The containers must be carried in a separate clear plastic, zip-top or resealable bag that does not exceed 20cm x 20cm (8 inches x 8 inches) or equivalent to one liter (1.75 pint) capacity.

Items must fit in the bag comfortably and the bag must be completely closed. At the airport security search, the plastic bag must be removed from the cabin bag and x-ray screened separately.

Baby food is permitted through the Security Search point. You may be asked to taste the food/liquid.

You can purchase the clear plastic bags which conform to the DFT liquid regulations. There is a charge of one pound, for four bags which can be purchased from the vending machines located at the bottom of the escalator, the top of the escalator and inside the security search area.
