ONE man’s internet campaign to stop the roll-out of controversial full body scanners at airports worldwide has attracted more than 10,000 members.
Adam Woodward, 38, from Chelmsford, believes the new scanners are one prying step too far into people’s privacy as they can see beneath people’s clothing, and also pose a health risk to both passengers and operators.
The controversial body scanners hit the headlines earlier this month when they became compulsory at Heathrow and Manchester airports with civil liberty campaigners outraged.
The Department for Transport say that the intention is to roll the scanners out nationwide, including Stansted Airport.
Air passengers who refuse a body scan at will be barred from taking their flights.
Adam’s Facebook group already has more than 10,000 members and he is calling Chronicle readers to join the campaign.
