Airport security worker 'failed to spot fake bomb clearly designed to look like explosives as it went through X-ray machine'
An airport security worker has been suspended after she failed to spot a fake bomb designed to look like explosives as it passed through the X-ray machine. The guard did not detect the dummy explosive as it passed through Manchester Airport's 'air side' meaning it could have been taken on board a flight by a passenger.
It is believed that the woman missed the fake bomb because she was looking at her work rota at the time rather than watching the screen.
