More security checks for Brit USA travellers

As reported by the Travel Weekly. The US Transport Security Administration (TSA) has announced extra security measures at British airports which will see up to 50% of passengers facing secondary screening. Specific details of the new methods have not yet been released, but all passengers on flights bound for America could be subject to additional searches, body scans and behavioural observation before being allowed on board.

The move is another result of the thwarted attempt to bring down a Delta Airlines flight by a Nigerian man using an explosive device hidden in his underwear on Christmas Day 2009. Full body searches and additional hand baggage searches were among measures introduced at boarding gates for passengers originating from 14 countries such as Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq. But this has now been extended so that passengers may face secondary screening, irrespective of nationality, age and gender.

The TSA has recommended that passengers “allow additional time to get through security on America-bound international flights” and urged passengers to check with their airports and carriers.

Swindon Twinned With Disney, Florida

For me the one thing I knew about Swindon was that Billy Piper came from there, which I'm sure you will agree is a quality claim to fame however...

20 year old Rebecca Warren may have just topped that. She entered her home town in a competition to find Disney World, Florida a British twin and out of 500 other nominations, Swindon won.

Rebecca showcased the town's credentials via a minute long video comparing Disney's highlights with that of Disney’s. She accompanied this with a poem. One line reads: “We may not have a castle or the hot Florida sun, but we do sure have what Disney has, its fun for everyone”

Hugh Wood from Disney destinations International said: “Her local pride and creative approach, coupled with her obvious knowledge of Walt Disney World just made the difference.

 

“We’re looking forward to building a friendly and magical relationship with our new twin, Swindon.”

 

Walt Disney Wiltshire will benefit from a string of accolades including an honor in the United Kingdom Pavilion at World Showcase within Epcot throughout 2010 and a community outreach programme in collaboration with Swindon Council and Disney’s community relations team.

 

Celebrations will kick off with a "twinning ceremony" in January.

 

It’s the first twinning for Disney, but the fifth for Swindon; its other twin towns are Salzgitter, Germany, Ocotal, Nicaragua, Torun, Poland and Chatanooga, USA.

Mayor of Swindon, Cllr David Wren, said: “We’re delighted the judges decided that Swindon’s magic complemented that of Walt Disney World.

 

“Rebecca did a great job promoting our town and we look forward to linking up with Disney over the coming year.”
