BAA [British Airports Authority – ed.] is investigating an incident in which a Heathrow security operative “ogled” a female colleague who’d wandered into a body scanner, the Sun reports.
John Laker, 25, allegedly copped an eyeful of Jo Margetson, 29, when the latter “entered the X-ray machine by mistake”. She was “horrified” as Laker “pressed a button to take a revealing photo” and remarked: “I love those […].”
Margetson reported the matter to her employer BAA and the police. She said: “I can’t bear to think about the body scanner thing. I’m totally traumatised. I’ve spoken to the police about it. I’m in too much of a state to go to work.” […]
Indeed, since their hasty introduction back in February at Heathrow and Manchester airports as a knee-jerk reaction to the Xmas Day underpants bomber, the devices have managed to upset just about everyone, amid concerns they’re actually a complete waste of time and money.
It now appears they have at least achieved something – to finally earn their popular moniker of “perv scanner”.
