Try a stationary shop for large zip bags.
I've just measured one of Tesco's 'sandwich size' bags.

It's 20cm high (excluding the bit above the zip) and 18cm wide. Since the maximum permitted size is 'approximately 20cm by 20cm' any bigger size will breach the rules. i.e. a single 'sandwich bag' is all that you're permitted to take on board:

Don't worry I'm sure you will be able to buy them at the airport for some ridiculous price. The whole thing is nonsense (100ml of water!!) and is just another way for the airports to make money..

thank you all

I flew out of Heathrow on Monday night and there are plenty of staff handing out resealable clear bags, all over the airport. You'll find staff at the short stay car parks, at check-in (Korean Air gave me one anyway) and again at the security check point.

A leaflet given to me with my bag at the airport states that (A) bags must be transparent and resealable (B) items should fit comfortable inside the bag (C) the bag should fasten closed and (D) each passenger may have one bag only.

Bags which are overfilled or not fastened closed will not be accepted. Also note that larger bottles will not be accepted, even if there is 100ml or less inside.
eBay?
