ALYSSA Milano has more reason than most to be irritated by the stringent 100ml rule for taking liquids in hand luggage.

The actress, who made her name in TV series Charmed, tweeted her fury after Heathrow disposed of 10oz of milk she'd expressed for her baby.

Guidelines issued by the airport state: "If you're travelling with a baby you can bring prepared milk and expressed milk in cartons or bottles over 100ml."

The same rule applies to baby food.



Milano went on to add that she was able to express more milk after clearing security, meaning that she was travelling with the banned substance. The actress is mother to two children, including 12-month-old girl Elizabella Dylan Bugliari.

The rule against bringing liquids and gels in containers over 100ml was introduced in 2006 after concerns that terrorists were planning to use liquid explosives.

Milano won praise from fans on Twitter, who believe that the incident raised awareness for parents.
