Leaked documents from the Home Office indicate plans to embed x-ray cameras in lamp posts to survey for terrorists. The x-ray scanner picks up concealed objects on the body such as coins, guns and drugs. (And presumably more exotic objects such as various plugs, lingerie and gerbils.) Concerns about manpower needed to actually follow-up on weird sightings, concerns about privacy, concerns about people who really, really want to be scanned by an x-ray camera, all of these things will be explored in full, no doubt.
