UK: Airport staff let hundreds of passengers skip checks on passports

3 April 2012

Hundreds of passengers walked into the UK without having their passports checked after immigration systems failed at a major airport.

Witnesses told how police and border officials stood back and watched as up to 200 travellers – angered at being delayed for three hours – decided to walk straight through immigration control.

The delays were caused by a computer power failure which prevented all new arrivals from having their passports electronically scanned.
