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.
