In response to new revelations of troubles at the UK Border, Chris Bryant MP, Shadow Immigration Minister has said:

"The government is in danger of scoring an extraordinary double own goal, undermining our border security and giving a chaotic first impression of the UK. No airport in the world is designed to keep thousands of people waiting to get through passport control. Theresa May and Damian Green need urgently to make resources available so that the events of this week are not repeated.

"The Home Secretary needs to be open and honest with the public and tell us how she intends to resolve these issues now rather than stopping BAA from distributing leaflets. She needs to avoid chaos at our borders come the Summer, the Olympic Games and thereafter."
