Heathrow worker given police warning for body scanning co-worker

The Guardian is reporting about an incident that seems at odds with the official pronouncements that body scanners at airports protect privacy:

Airport worker given police warning for 'misusing' body scanner UK news

... A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Police received an allegation regarding an incident that happened at Heathrow Terminal 5 on March 10. A first-instance harassment warning has been issued to a 25-year-old male."

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."...

This is absolutely ludicrous. It is obvious that the worker was just having a bit of fun. Bureacracy gone mad in the UK! Heathrow Airport should be ashamed.
