Passenger’s fury as airport security guard poses with her lobster

A businesswoman has criticised an airport security guard for rifling through her luggage and having a photograph taken with one of her live lobsters. Lisa Feinman, who owns the Atlantic Seafood Market in the US state of Connecticut, had carefully packed more than a dozen lobsters in a cooler to fly to a customer in Boston. After the Transportation Security Administration posted the picture on Instagram, attracting thousands of likes, Ms Feinman said she was “personally offended” by the agent’s actions. She added that the TSA should focus on doing its job and “leave our personal property alone”. On Facebook, she wrote: “When is it okay to go through someone’s checked baggage and take photographs? “I packed this checked cooler with care and concern for the lobsters and my customer’s personal property.” Ms Feinman claimed the lobster in the photograph had been purposely packed underneath the other live crustaceans, so the agent “had to dump out 12 other lobsters to get to this guy”.

She also alleged the TSA agent at Logan International Airport in Boston could have broken one of the lobster’s claws because he was not handling it properly. The TSA is yet to respond to Ms Feinman’s claims, but earlier said the lobster had “cooperated quite nicely with the screening process”. According to the agency’s website, live lobsters are allowed through security as long as they are transported in a clear, plastic, spill proof container.

It adds that TSA officers are required to visually inspect lobsters at checkpoints.

Glastonbury revellers urged to be patient amid raised security checks

Festival goers are being asked to “be patient” as they contend with heightened security checks to get into Glastonbury. Extra car and bag searches mean getting on the site is likely to be a slow process for the thousands of ticket holders hoping to set up camp early. Avon and Somerset Police say there is “no intelligence” to suggest a specific threat to the festival. However, in the wake of the terror attacks in London and Manchester, increased security measures have been introduced. Assistant Chief Constable Caroline Peters says the policing style “may look and feel slightly different” but, like the rest of the UK, “festival-goers should be alert but not alarmed”. High visibility officers are going to be present throughout the festival, mostly for reassurance. “Police officers, they’re going to be wearing black shirts, they’re going to be wearing protective vests and body cameras – but that’s no different to any day to day patrol,” she added.

After the suicide attack on Manchester Arena, security at major music events has been a lot more visible. Armed police protected rockers at the Download Festival and the Isle of White. In Germany, thousands of people had to be evacuated from a rock festival when police received a credible terror threat. John Gearson, Professor of National Security Studies at King’s College, says police face a challenge; how best to deter copycats without making the public feel alarmed. “The difficult question, I think, for the police and for the organisers is how far an armed police presence will be appropriate and needed to deter people who might want to carry out armed attacks. “We are going to control it and contain it, but in the current climate people have to accept that there is a greater risk, let’s say a residual danger, than there was in previous years.

“People who think they’ve got nothing to do with politics will find they are the target of some of these terrible violent acts.” Festival goers have been asked to play their part in keeping Glastonbury safe and secure. Ticket-holders have been told to pack light, place luggage tags or ID on all bags and belongings including their name and mobile number. Queues getting into Glastonbury are nothing new . It is, after all, the largest greenfield music and performing arts festival in the world. This time last year, on the Wednesday before the festival, congestion on the roads caused traffic jams that some claimed lasted almost 11 hours.

The reason then was simple: mud .

Flash floods meant poor conditions for driving onto the site.
