UK Airport Security Relaxed from Today

#1
Airline passengers will once again be dining with metal cutlery, knitting jumpers and manicuring their nails aboard flights from British airports following a relaxation of anti-terrorist rules.
Ministers have changed security guidelines because they believe some sharp household objects no longer pose a threat should they fall into the hands of a would-be hijacker.


Bladed and pointed items were banned from cabins after the September 11 attacks in which hijackers caused thousands of deaths with the help of sharpened box-cutters they had smuggled onto flights.
