The UK’s equality watchdog has written to the Home Secretary over concerns about the proposed introduction of body scanners at airports.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) claims the devices risk breaching the Human Rights Act right to privacy and is calling on the Government to justify the measure.
Earlier this month, Prime Minister Gordon Brown said there would be a “gradual” introduction of scanners at airports.
It followed the alleged attempt to down an American plane near Detroit on Christmas Day.
