|A still from the CCTV footage from Manchester Airport|
Kelly Hadfield-Hyde, 50, was on her way to Malaga via Manchester Airport and first had to go through the annoying security procedure. She had placed her belt and coat into the tray for scanning and claims a security guard, Abdullah Mayet, pointed at her and said, "Off."

So that's what Ms Hadfield-Hyde started to do! She began taking off her clothes, only stopping once she had removed her bra.
We know all of this because the incident was caught on CCTV cameras and Ms Hadfield-Hyde had to explain her actions to Magistrates in Trafford. She and a friend, who also started to undress, were arrested and charged with the public order offence of causing a disturbance.
In court she accused the security guard of having a poor command of English. Mr Mayet told magistrates that his instructions had been clear and he had never asked the women to strip completely.
As I think most of us know, you can't win against airport security. The outcome was that Hadfield-Hyde was found guilty. She was given a £55 fine, ordered to pay a £20 victim surcharge and £850 costs. Her friend, Ann Chadwick, was given a conditional discharge for 12 months and ordered to pay £500 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
So there we go, if we all stripped off at airport security there wouldn't be these sort of misunderstandings!
