A bodyguard for David Cameron is being investigated after he reportedly left his gun in a toilet on a transatlantic flight.

The Daily Mail newspaper reported that the weapon found on a trans-Atlantic flight was handed to flight attendants.

As a former prime minister, Mr Cameron is entitled to continued security provided by the Metropolitan Police.

The gun, believed to be a 9mm Glock 17 pistol, is said to have been left by a close-protection officer from the Met’s Specialist Protection unit.

The incident happened on board a British Airways flight #BA112 from New York JFK on 3 February. Mr Cameron’s passport – and that of the officer – were found with the weapon.

The Met said the officer involved has been removed from operational duties.
