A civil rights organisation wants to hear examples of security measures that are so ill-advised, impotent or irritating that they should be named and shamed.

Privacy International (PI) announced on Monday that it is holding the "Stupid Security Awards" in an attempt to highlight the absurdities of the security industry.

These awards were first held by PI in 2003. They are being staged again, according to PI director Simon Davies, in response to a sharp rise in "pointless, intrusive, stupid and self-serving" security measures.
