The Sunday Times has a report about the shocked reaction of adult passengers going through the new low intensity X-ray scanner at Heathrow Airport Terminal 4.
'“I was quite shocked by what I saw,” said Gary Cook, 40, a graphic designer from Shaftesbury, Dorset. “I felt a bit embarrassed looking at the image.
A female passenger, who did not want to be named, said: “It was really horrible. It doesn’t leave much to the imagination because you’re virtually naked, but I guess it’s less intrusive than being hand searched.”'
The article fails to mention the question of Children being scanned by such "see under your clothes technology". Under the draconian UK laws, without exception, this constitutes "making or distributing child pornography" and it could also constitute Voyeurism under the Sexual Offences Act 2003. At the very least the operators of the equipment could easily be accused of Voyeurism, which will be very hard to defend against, given the subjective nature of the wording "for the purposes of sexual gratification".
