| I was extremely upset at how the staff at this Airport treated our 14 year old daughter as well as myself and husband. After 2 weeks unwinding in Turkey, our holiday was ruined just as were trying to board the plane. After going through the numerous main security checks, a further ‘random’ security check were being carried out on persons handpicked by the security staff. Our 14 year old daughter was plucked from us by an incredibly rude member of the security staff and ordered her to join a line up for a further security check. Her bag was rifled through by members of staff, who had no respect for her personal belongings. Her personal possessions were swabbed as well herself being swabbed, which is incredibly invasive for anyone, let alone a 14 year old girl who has been taken from her family in a crowded airport with no explanation. Unbelievable, before invading her personal belongings and personal space, at no point were we, the parents, asked for consent in this intrusive search method to take place. Whilst the above as taking place, I attempted to ask what the extra checks were looking for, as any concerned mother would. However, due to the language barrier, I was greeted with a tirade of angry shouting and myself and my husband were being physically pushed away from our daughter by the security staff. As this was taking place, we heard the last call for our flight to Birmingham over the Airport tannoy. The security staff continued to push us towards the gate and told us to get on the plane without our daughter. What parent in their right mind would leave their 14 year old daughter to be searched in a foreign airport and board their flight home? We were gobsmacked and prospect of missing our flight increased the intensiveness of the situation. It almost seemed like there was an ulterior motive to the search. Before this experience, my daughter was very wary of flying and being able to come on this holiday was a massive step in resolving her reservations of flying. However after this experience, her anxiety is still at an all-time high, even after having been back in England for 4 days.
