HEYSHAM SEARCHES / ID
Can anyone who has departed Heysham in the last couple of days give a heads up with regards to the stop/search/ ID issues from there. Would be good to have a bit of advice thank's.

RE: HEYSHAM SEARCHES / ID
Was on the 02:00 this morning, had plenty of photo ID with me (bus pass, drivers licence, pilots licence, etc) but there were no specific checks made.

I wasn't stopped by security, but as is normal, many were.

I always carry photo ID on my travels, just in case.

RE: HEYSHAM SEARCHES / ID
I've taken a small stove loads of times in my panniers and never had an issue, think you have to disconnect it which mine does anyway. once took a calor cylinderi in my gas barbie  (diconnected in the van), got searched and the dummy pointed at it and asked "whats that for?" then he 'found' my empty 5 litre petrol can and asked what that was for then started interrogating me as to whether I had any more empty cans 'hidden' (he'd already searched the van) - you would have thought he'd found some semtex. he got told what a dead he was in anglo saxon.

RE: HEYSHAM SEARCHES / ID
Nothing to hide at all and welcome any search in light of recent terrorist acts, got stopped and searched in 2015 at Heysham as you said very pleasant and took a couple of minutes just wanted to know if anything other than the normal search was happening. I only have my photo card licence as ID.

RE: HEYSHAM SEARCHES / ID
Thanks for the feedback, I was wondering what stage we were at, I'd heard that the soldiers had left Heysham & things were back to normal (ish!), but didn't know whether the port authorities were up to speed.

RE: HEYSHAM SEARCHES / ID
I got on the rock last night from Liverpool got stoped and surched in Liverpool check panniers and the like. Then when we got off the boat at Douglas my mate was stopped and breathalysed.
All done as nicely as possible iv got no problem with it. But don't get carried away on the boat and have a pint to many

RE: HEYSHAM SEARCHES / ID
ID was in connection with the Manchester bomb incident. security levels are now reduced slightly so its back to normal.
