Passengers at Manchester Airport will be greeted by holograms of staff from next week in a bid to reduce security check queues.
The images of customer service workers John and Julie were created by the same company which brought the chart-topping animated band Gorillaz to life on stage.
The recordings of actual employees John Walsh and Julie Capper will appear as travellers enter the security search area at Terminal 1. They will explain the liquid restrictions and remind passengers to have their boarding cards ready.
Bosses at the airport say it has become the first in the world to introduce holograms as part of its passenger security preparation.
