Do laptops get checked at UK airports?

Postby loftie » Tue Sep 02, 2008 6:32 am

Afternoon all,

I'm going on holiday to Italy in a week, and wanted to know if laptops get checked at UK airports. I remember reading that they wanted to do it - as well as mp3 players phones etc - but am unsure if they are actually doing it!

Cheers

Id leave the porn on there, if they suspect you of anything (or pull you in to keep their numbers up to justify the huge budget they get) they'll appreciate looking at nice ladies and be nicer to you. :lol:

After all, porn isn't really illegal anyways. Some of it is, but a few pictures of naked women isn't breaking any law.
Don't roll your chair backwards, you might run over my foot.

I travel in and out of the UK a couple of times each month and have done for about 2-3 years now... I've never once had any electrical item checked/tagged or anything. Only annoying thing you have to do is take all your electrical items out of your hand luggage and put them in a seperate tub when going through security and remember you can only take liquids on board which I think are upto 100ml and in a square sealed transparent plastic bag.

Not purely from a 'what's on this?' point of view, but there's a chance they'll inspect it physically. afaik there aren't any mp3 police ;)

As long as there's nothing criminal on it, i'm sure no-one will care.
