Laprops And Ipads

I have just returned from Kasadasi and, taken advice from numerous sources, packed all my electronic devices in my hold' luggage. All was going well until the first security check when I had to remove my laptop and iPad from all their well planned padding and put them through the the scanner separately. What a palaver!
So, for all who are returning tho the UK can I suggest you take your electronic items to the airport in a carrier bag/similar and then pack them in the middle of your suitcase after security.
Must admit, we had a giggle but initially were perplexed...........but that is nothing new!
