Well it didn’t take long… A Heathrow airport security man was recently quizzed by police after ogling a female colleague “naked” in the new anti-terror body scanner. Jo Margetson, 29, reported John Laker, 25, after he took her picture with the X-ray gadget and made a lewd comment.
The guard leered and told her: “I love those gigantic t**s.” She had entered the X-ray machine by mistake – and was horrified when Laker pressed a button to take a revealing photo.
Laker, who will be reprimanded, has become the first airport security worker to be caught abusing the controversial new x-ray devices. After Laker sneaked a look at her body and made the remark, a horrified Jo told her bosses and police at the West London airport.
Both work for airport operator BAA. Last night Jo 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.”
Laker was questioned by police and on Monday was given a formal warning for harassment, which is one level below a caution.
