Futuristic facial scans for flights to Spain

A new facial screening technology is to be piloted in airports across the UK in a bid to reduce waiting times for those taking flights to Spain and other countries.

Passengers will be screened with facial recognition technology instead of the usual passport officer checks in a move that is hoped will both improve security and ease congestion.
