Full-body security scans using X-ray scanning technology that effectively allows security staff to view a naked image of passengers have been banned for children under the age of 18 at Manchester International Airport in the UK.

The scans, which are conducted in the airport’s Terminal 2, have been temporarily stopped for young people while legal advice is sought.

Civil rights group Action on Rights for Children (Arch) believes the scanners breach laws protecting children.

The voluntary year-long scan trial, which was introduced last week, aims to improve security at Manchester Airport.
