A human X-ray machine which produces ‘naked’ images of passengers was introduced at an airport today, enabling staff to instantly spot any hidden weapons or explosives.
The full body scanner, being trialled at Manchester Airport, will also show up any breast enlargements, false limbs, piercings, and a clear outline of passengers’ private parts.
However fears have been raised that the Rapiscan Secure 1000, which resembles a large filing cabinet, may not be safe for women in the early stages of pregnancy or children.
Other travellers might not want to be scanned because of the graphic nature of the images, bosses admit.
