‘Off with the veil at UK airports’ says Sun

The Sun today launches a campaign to close the veil loophole making a mockery of Britain’s airport security. We told yesterday how a member of the gang which killed WPC Sharon Beshenivsky sneaked out of Heathrow by donning a Muslim niqab, with just a slit for eyes. Now we are calling on Home Secretary John Reid to turn passport control at every airport in the country into a veil-free zone.
