UK: Controversial airport body scanners to be scrapped

19 September 2012

The last remaining full-body X-ray airport scanners are to be scrapped within weeks.

The European Commission ruled that the cancer risk was ‘’close to zero” but, under Brussels legislation, the three-year trial period has elapsed and it has decided not to ‘’prioritise” them for permanent use across the continent.

The scanners will be replaced with ‘’privacy-friendly” machines which use radio-frequency technology.
