Women say No to naked scanners

2 women refuse to take naked scanner test at airport. It is believed this is the first time passengers have refused to go through the scanners.A Manchester Airport spokesman said: "Two female passengers who were booked to fly out of Terminal 2 refused to be scanned for medical and religious reasons.
"Body scanning is a big change for customers who are selected under the new rules and we are aware that privacy concerns are on our customers' minds, which is why we have put strict procedures to reassure them that their privacy will be protected."
The women forfeited their flight and left the airport.
