A South Korean man sparked a security scare at Prestwick Airport when he was found to have a tube of toothpaste strapped to his body.
The man was detained at Prestwick Airport
He was detained as he checked in for a flight to Paris.
The 20-year-old man was later allowed to continue with his journey after convincing police that there was an innocent explanation.
A police source said he appeared to be attempting to avoid handing over his toiletries at airport security.
He was stopped by security staff after they spotted a number of suspicious objects under his shirt.
These turned out to include toothpaste and body lotion, which he had taped to his skin.
The tourist was arrested by police and charged with a breach of the peace.
But the charge was later dropped and the man released.
A spokesman for the airport said the incident had shown security measures in place at Prestwick were working.
