T5 site checks

BAA has introduced random security checks on all vehicles entering the Terminal 5 construction site at Heathrow Airport. The checks are being carried out by security guards and police and come in the wake of last week's heightened security alert at the airport which saw hundreds of armed police and soldiers descend on it, amid fears of a terrorist attack. A BAA spokeswoman said: 'All T5 workers and vehicles who enter the site must have the appropriate documentation before being allowed in.'
