Passengers travelling through British airports could be made to submit to full body scans following the failed Christmas Day terror attack, Gordon Brown has said.
The attempt by Detroit bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to blow up an aeroplane this week should act as a “wake-up call” for the country to ensure that Britain can prevent future terrorist incidents.
In an article on the lessons to be drawn from the incident, published on the Downing Street website, the Prime Minister said that he would do everything possible to preserve the “safety and security” of the public.
Experts have expressed concern that Britain was falling behind other countries and putting lives at risk by not immediately introducing X-ray-like full body scanners after ministers said that there were “no plans” to introduce them.
