A 28-year-old British woman was forced to strip from the waist up and show her weight loss surgery scars to airport security to prove her identity.

Fiona Murray was at Izmir airport in Turkey returning to Britain when airport security doubted that the picture on her passport was hers.

Murray has lost about half her body weight—a whooping 82.5kg—in four years in a dramatic weight loss transformation. She initially weighed about 165kg.

As a result of her weight loss, she had to undergo seven surgeries to remove sagging skin, which left her with scars that she used to prove her identity.

In a recent interview, she said: “I felt violated and victimized. I was distraught. It was an invasion of my personal space. They must have thought I was using a stolen passport. I felt horrible. I felt like they were laughing at me."
