More Staff To Ease Heathrow Queues

Eighty extra staff are going to start work at Heathrow airport this month, to help ease queues at immigration.

The Immigration Minister, Damien Green, has made the announcement, saying passengers are being made to wait too long to get into the UK.  

Immigration desks at Heathrow, and other key ports and airports in the South East, will also be fully staffed during peak periods, like the Olympics.

It comes as the head of British Airways' parent company, Willie Walsh, says he would be happy to pay more in landing fees at Heathrow if border control services improved.
