Goggles to Protect Potter
- Cinema staff get night-vision equipment

SCIENCE and technology rather than magic and spells are to save Harry Potter in the young wizard's latest adventure.

One of the UK's leading cinema chains, Vue, is issuing its staff hi-tech night vision goggles to seek out and remove any cinema-goer making sneaky and illegal recordings of the just-released blockbuster.

"They are mainly to prevent the Harry Potter film being copied and ending up on the net," one London cinema manager said. "We've never caught anyone copying films here and we've had no problems as yet with Potter, but we are keeping a close eye on the audiences. These new goggles are extremely effective - they don't give off any light, so the customers can't see you using them."

Rumours that cinema staff are concentrating their surveillance on snogging back-row couples remain unconfirmed.
