According to the BBC: Facial recognition gates at Manchester Airport were temporarily taken out of use after a couple walked through the scanners after swapping passports. It is believed the pair passed through the gates in Terminal One on the morning of 8 February. The UK Border Agency said they were stopped by the immigration officer supervising the gates afterwards. It said use of the gates was suspended while an investigation was carried out but they later reopened.
