The BAA employee took a photo of his co-worker, Jo Margetson, when she inadvertently went through a scanner.
“I can't bear to think about the body scanner thing,” she told the Sun. “I'm totally traumatised. I've spoken to the police about it. I'm in too much of a state to go to work.”
BAA said: “We treat any allegations of inappropriate behaviour or misuse of security equipment very seriously and these claims are being investigated thoroughly,” a BAA spokesman said. “If found to be substantiated we will take appropriate action.”
Well it’s not a surprise that the thing is used for what it was built. These things are a total scourge on our privacy and it’s ridiculous that these can be used on passengers, especially when they don’t increase passenger safetly at all.
