This week the strict security restrictions on hand luggage at British airports will be relaxed somewhat. Passengers will be able to take larger bags and some essential liquid items. Musicians will also be allowed to carry their musical instruments. However, for now, passengers will still be required to remove their shoes at the X-Rays.
Big deal. I would rather take my shoes off at airport security than be blown up in mid-air.
Hopefully, with British passengers having to remove their shoes at airports, they will be more relaxed about removing their shoes when entering homes.
