They explained that you never want to see two security guards on one x-ray machine as it takes longer.

They said: “When there is more than one security office on an X-ray machine, there is often a chance that one of the employees is a trainee.

“So you might risk a line going a little slower.”

A travel expert also shared some tips on how to choose the right queue to get through airport security as quickly as possible.

“Look at the people in line and choose the line with the most business travelers.

Her second tip was to avoid any queues with families with young children, as unsurprisingly they are the slowest groups.

She wrote: “If you don’t see lines with business travelers, then at least avoid lines with families (especially families with young children) at all costs.

Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham said they are even debating calling in police and fire services to help tackle the chaos, telling the BBC: “I was in touch with colleagues from Greater Manchester Police over the weekend, to see what we can do to support the airport.”

Some airline industry figures have accused the government for the lack of staff, because the security check takes several weeks longer than usual.
