Warning of easter queues at airports

Flying in and out of London could be a headache this easter due to a lack of border agency staff.

British Airways and Virgin are warning the government it could lead to long queues and passengers stuck on planes.

A spokesman for Heathrow owner BAA has told the Daily Telegraph: "Immigration waiting times during peak periods at Heathrow are currently unacceptable and we have called on the UK Border Force to address the problem as a matter of urgency.

"There isn't a trade-off between strong border security and a good passenger experience. UK Border Force should be delivering both."
