Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has accused British Airways of removing things from her luggage as she flew back to the United States.

The 31-year-old used her Twitter account to vent her anger, saying "shame on you" to the airline.

She did not reveal what had been taken or how many items had been removed.

Kardashian was in the UK as part of a promotional tour for her new perfume, before she left to make an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival.

A British Airways spokesperson said they were looking into the claims.

The star wrote on Twitter: "Very disappointed in British Airways for opening my luggage and taking some special items of mine.

"Some things are sentimental and not replaceable.

"What happened to the days when you could lock your bags! We need to get back to that. There's no sense of security and no trust!"

Newsbeat has tried to contact Kim Kardashian's people but they are yet to respond.
