The full body scanner, on trial at Manchester airport, will also show breast enlargements, false limbs, piercings, and a clear outline of private parts. Bosses admitted some travellers might not want to be scanned because of the graphic nature of the images and they can refuse to undergo the virtual strip- search at Terminal 2, opting for the traditional pat down search instead. But the image will only be seen by one officer in a remote location before it is deleted. Sarah Barrett, head of customer experience at the airport, said: Most customers find the pat down search too intrusive. The images are not erotic or pornographic and cant be stored. The scanners, which cost 80,000 each and are made by the firm rapiscan Systems were also tested at Heathrow airport in 2004. They make the check-in process much quicker as passengers do not have to remove their coats, shoes or belts. The Department for Transport will decide whether to install them permanently at the end of this year-long trial. by geoRgina littlejohn SNOOKER pundit John Virgo is the latest BBC personality to be accused of making an inappropriate racial remark. The gaffe came as Virgo, 63, was commentating during BBC2s coverage of the Snooker Grand Prix final on Sunday. Chinese snooker player Ding Junhui was struggling against his Australian opponent Neil Robertson when Virgo said: I think theres a chink in his armour. The remark was met with silence by fellow commentator Dennis Taylor. The BBC said the phrase was commonly used and appropriate to the context. There was absolutely no intention whatsoever to cause any offence, said a spokesman. It comes after the Strictly Come Dancing race row in which Anton Du Beke joked that Laila Rouass looked like a Paki.
