Body scanners will be used on the Los Angeles subway to screen passengers for explosives and weapons, the local transport authority has announced.

It is the first mass transport system in the US to adopt the technology.

Portable scanners will be used to screen passengers as they enter stations, without them having to pass through a security checkpoint.

Authorities said the screening would be "voluntary", but those refusing a scan will not be allowed to travel.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LACMTA) said it had ordered equipment from UK manufacturer Thruvision.

The company's equipment is not currently used on UK public transport, but it has been trialled at the Farnborough Airshow.

The scanners have a wide field of view and can screen passengers as they ride an escalator or enter through ticket barriers.

BTW, I won't use self service unless they'll give me 15% discount. I told them once I didn't work for their company.

And next up... Supermarkets! Happened just last week 'countdown' scanned their customers on the way out, on the presumption they were all shoplifters, with concealed product hidden in various body areas. They had to be told 'you are not the airport'.

Voluntary but compulsory, I require clarification.
