This report shows how casual "Security" at Birmingham airport realy is.
Responsibility for security rests with the managers of the airport.
Their responsibility is to protect passengers from terrorists and such - clearly if a terrorist had been active at Birmingham airport, then lives were at risk.

If this man had already planted a device on an aircraft, the story would be different.
Security at Birmingham was breached by a drunk amateur.
