"No Scan, No Fly" At Heathrow and Manchester.
"It is now compulsory for people selected for a full body scan to take
part, or they will not be allowed to fly from Heathrow or Manchester
airports. There is no optional pat down. Also, a rule which meant that
people under 18 were not allowed to participate in the body scanner
trial has been overturned by the government. There is no mention of
blurring out the genitals, however reports a few years back said X-ray
backscatter devices aren't effective unless the genitals of people going
through them are visible."
