It is a good to carry all the documents you used to obtain the visa along with you.

Do I need to bring any documents with me to the UK?
On arrival, an immigration officer may ask you to show evidence of your reasons for coming to the UK. This may include travel tickets, evidence of funding, letters from your sponsor or businesses you are visiting, or schools you will study at. You should carry in your hand luggage copies of documents that you showed to the visa officer.

dont scare jojo man, he has entry clearance not a visit visa ... and really unless you look dodgy, are coming from africa or south america or don't speak no english, dressed dodgy, look suspicious, you don't get asked all that ... they guy afterall got tier 1, so i am assuming is a highly skilled well educated person ...

yo, dude, you landed already? pls. share what happened at the airport? the so called gurus here on forum have a tendency of scaring newbies for no reason ...

I don't understand what is scary in carrying a copy of documents you used to get your entry clearance. While most of them don't have any problem at the immigration desk, these documents might get handy.

Please think twice before you accuse somebody, thelionking.

Nobody tries to intimidate the newbies here.

I have advised what I think is correct. It is upto the OP to take it or leave it.
