Apparently I've had an adjustable spanner in my suitcase for who knows how long. On my most recent flight I had to have it tossed away in airport security. This even though I've flown with it many times before. And I only flew on a short domestic flight in a 20 seat airplane.
The reason the officer gave me was "You are not allowed to bring tools on-board".
I find this rather silly. Is it true?
My spanner was the same size as the one pictured below, or maybe even smaller.
