Security problem since update

I have a passcode on my phone and since updating last night to 5.1 on the home locked screen you can now press the camera and drag upwards which takes you straight into the camera and then press the home button and you are into the phone properly without having to enter the passcode.
Anyone know of a way to stop this?

Disable the passcode, and then re-enable it, this should fix it.
