Kim Kardashian got in a right old tizz when she thought her luggage had been rifled through on a recent flight to Los Angeles.

British Airways has now launched an investigation into the reality star's claims that a pair of sunglasses owned by her late father had gone AWOL from her case.

Last week, she told her Twitter followers: "Very disappointed in British Airways for opening my luggage & taking some special items of mine! Some things are sentimental & 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 & no trust! Shame on you."

The airline have come forward to say they are now trying to find out exactly what happened.

A spokesperson told London's Evening Standard: "Terminal  5 (at Heathrow) has some of the most sophisticated automated baggage systems in the world, which are able to monitor bags every minute of their time in the terminal.

"At this stage, we have discovered no evidence to suggest that the bag in question was interfered with at Heathrow. Our investigation is seeking to establish details of the bag's passage through Nice and Los Angeles airports."

Kim was heading back home to LA from Nice via London Heathrow, after enjoying the Cannes Film Festival, where she was spotted at a string of parties, including P.Diddy's yacht bash.

Previous to that she'd been in the UK to promote her new fragrance and support boyfriend Kanye West when he played The O2 with Jay-Z.
