It is one of the most annoying aspects of modern air travel - kicking off shoes and removing belts to get through security without setting off the scanner. One frustrated traveller clearly decided the only answer was to strip off altogether, much to the surprise of security guards. The incident at Pulkovo Airport, in St Petersburg, Russia, saw the man strip his clothes off in a nonchalant manner before strolling through the metal detector watch by bemused airport workers. Two guards can be seen chatting and looking on as the man bends down to remove his shoes and then starts to remove his belt. Suddenly the man, who some sources believe may be an IT department worker at the airport, takes off his trousers altogether an places them in the tray with the rest of his belongings. One security worker can be seen nudging his colleague and pointing to the man, but neither appears to know what to do next. Then, as if there is nothing unusual about the situation, the man picks up his clothes - places his wrist watch back on first, then proceeds to walk off. St Petersburg police are said to be investigating the incident. Passengers at airports around the world have long complained of 'invasive' searches at security points, with American passengers in particular complaining about the methods of the Transport Security Administration
