London will use biometric systems to prevent fraud in the 2012 Olympics

London Government will start using biometrics to prevent fraud during the 2012 Olympic Games: British police will undertake face-scans for over 10,000 athletes, with the objective to make the identification easier and prevent other people -specially illegal immigrants and terrorists- to use the flow of visitors to the United Kingdom to enter London.

A temporary terminal has also been installed in Heathrow airport to identify people arriving for the event.

It is estimated that the influx of tourists will be of around 5,5 million people and the biometric registration solution will make the prevention work undertaken by the authorities much easier.
