My husband and I have had an excessive security check at Malaga Airport on Thursday 12 March 2015. While we both acknowledge the need for effective security surely the security personnel should have a certain level of intelligence and above all common sense. We are both 70+ and are seasoned travellers. My handbag was searched and although I had inadvertently left a fresh pear in it it was not noticed. I had to remove my boots despite there being no heels I had travelled wearing them from Brussels to Dublin and then Dublin to Malaga and did not need to remove them previously. My husband had to remove his belt and his braces despite the fact that his trousers were falling off him he suffers from Parkinson's and he was frantically trying to hold up his trousers with his trembling hands - of course he was furious and this did not help the situation. The Security person called someone who looked like a policeman and mumbled something to him in Spanish. My husband's computer was switched on by the Security person - how could that be necessary? Again I underline the need for common sense which was very thin on the ground at Malaga Airport.
