Passengers using Heathrow and Manchester airports will not be allowed to board their flights if they refuse to undergo a full-body scan. But in a bid to allay privacy fears, the Transport Secretary Lord Adonis promised that the images are deleted “immediately”.
A human X-ray machine which produces “naked” images of passengers is being trialled at Manchester Airport. The scanner can spot any hidden weapons or explosives but also shows up breast inserts, false limbs, piercings, and an outline of people’s genitals.
