The DfT informed PIC We do appreciate that the new security regulations do cause some inconvenience to yourselves and the members you represent. As you will appreciate the new requirements were not entered into lightly and they are there to help combat a very real threat. Restricting the size of hand baggage does make it that much easier to look for items that are of particular concern. At the present time there are no plans to change the current regulations though they are under constant review. Film can go into hand luggage and it is up to the airport to ensure that all items are carried safe through x-ray and hand search as necessary.
Basically, that means business as usual for ALL film users. For further information on hand baggage security visit www.dft.gov.uk or contact Elaine Cole at PIC on 01883 334497.
