Passengers take airport security request to remove clothing too far

2013-11-01 10:12
Manchester - Two British women have appeared in court on a charge of causing a disturbance at Manchester Airport after attempting a Full Monty of sorts.

Airport security guard's asked them to remove their clothes before passing through the scanner, but the two women took it a bit too seriously.

The Daily Mail identified the women as Lady Kelly Hadfield-Hyde, 50, and Ann Chadwick, 48, who were on their way to catch a flight to Malaga when the incident took place on 3 December 2012.

In the video below the two can be seen talking to the security staff as they take off their coats and belts, before placing it in the security trays. A few minutes later things turn slightly weird as Hadfield-Hyde can be seen taking her top and bra off.

The report states she says the security guard was pointing at her and asking her to take it all off. Both women were then arrested, with the women accusing the guard of having poor command of the English language.

The court found both women guilty and ordered them to pay a fine as well as the costs of the case. After receiving the judgement Hadfield-Hyde reportedly seemed unfazed, stating that she might have been a bit over the top in her behaviour but she still believes she did nothing wrong.
