    UK to move away from “one-size-fits-all” airport security:confused:

    The Department for Transport has announced proposals to modernise the regulation of aviation security, with airports rewarded for good practice by being granted greater autonomy in security procedures.
    The proposals, which are subject to consultation, could spell the end for compulsory security checks such as shoes and belts being removed and laptops taken out of bags.
    Secretary of State for Transport Philip Hammond said he wanted to move away from “the current, highly prescriptive, one-size-fits-all approach where all operators run the same regime to one where industry takes a more proactive and more innovative and tailored approach to security”.
