I am not sure that photo ID has anything to do with airport security. It is just a way of a carrier having proof that you are who you say you are.
The routine checks that we have to submit to in any UK airport are proscribed by the Home Office, either through the DFT or Border Control. These are then implemented by each airport in a way that best suits them (eg by directly employing staff or using a contractor), and they are of course a minimum standard.
