Default Warning about hand-checking film

This is just to let you know that at London Gatwick airport and at the Eurostar train stations, the security staff refuses to hand-check film.

I only had my digital camera so my pictures are fine, but my mom had two one-time-use cameras, one of which had 800 speed film. All we can do is hope that the pictures turn out okay.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Yep, that's been true in England for years--even pre 9/11. It started after Lockerbie.

Some other European countries won't do it either. Get your film developed over there or send it to a US lab in a mailer.

Yes, I saw your pics. That's encouraging. Hopefully my mom's will turn out fine as well.

Looks like you had a great trip.

Cheers,
