Ive seen the video report, it makes for very scary viewing, the fact a reporter can gain "easy access" onto the Apron without having to pass a single X-ray or security check.
Also he was allowed to roam the Apron for 15 minutes, only to be passed by a security van and even that didnt stop to ask him questions or enquire why he was there.
So basically he sneaked into a unclosed office holding sensitive security and access codes, went onto a closed section of LHR
, climbed down the steps onto the Apron, walked around for 15 minutes and in all this time he was only asked what he was doing around so late ONCE in the terminal.
I think BAA have made yet another balls-up, and its about time someone told them they own the airport and not London itself (threatening to close off the perimeter fence area to stop TV
crews reporting there anymore.)
I mean to be honest im glad it was a reporter and noone else with a "motive" carrying explosives or guns.
One final note, I wish SkyNews wouldnt call the area the "plane-spotters observation deck" because everyone knows that was closed off to prevent reasons like this, and gives spotters a bad name.
Its not the fall that kills u, its the sudden stop at the end..
