Controversial ‘naked’ body scanners could be introduced at all UK airports after top scientists declared them safe.

Manchester Airport has been trialling the device – known as back scatter scanner – since 2009, but the European Commission halted new trials last year amid concerns there was a risk to passengers’ health from high levels of radiation.
