Essex: Airport trials new body scanner
1:00pm Sunday 28th October 2012 in News
Stansted Airport has begun trialling a new security body scanner.
It detects any potential threats and prohibited items after a passenger has activated the walk-through security arch.
The machine highlights to security officers the area to search via a generic mannequin-type computer image.
It is said to provide an additional and less intrusive method of security screening and reducing the need for pat-down searches.
The trial will run for three months.
