Shock rocker Alice Cooper was being reunited with his beloved collection of more than 300 horror movies after his bag went missing at an airport.

Cooper, 61, was said to be "gutted" after losing the piece of luggage crammed with obscure films, some described as irreplaceable.

Cooper carried the bag on a flight which landed at Heathrow airport on Tuesday.

He had it with him while he was at Heathrow but it somehow got lost.

The dark grey Oakley bag contained a collection of obscure horror DVDs and a laptop, a statement on his behalf said.

He was so desperate to get the bag back that he issued an appeal, saying anyone able to return his bag with the contents intact would receive two tickets and backstage passes to meet him at any show on his Theatre of Death tour.

A spokesman for British Airways said that the airline had found Cooper's bag.

As soon as the statement from Cooper was forwarded to them, which had contact details for his representatives, the airline got straight in touch to arrange its return.

"The bag is on its way," the spokesman said.
