I had the same experience at T4. And why not just ask the passenger to take out the e-reader and then re-screen the bag? Instead, they unpacked the entire contents of each carry-on and swabbed randomly. It seems to be another Heathrow USP, designed to secure their place as the least-user friendly airport in the world. (i should add that mine was a Kobo — I ditched the Kindle because I just couldn’t face handing over any more money to the tax dodgers at Amazon)
