The shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper has called on the Home Secretary Theresa May to "get a grip" of delays at UK airports.
"So much for the Prime Minister ordering Theresa May to get a grip last week. The chaos at our borders is clearly spreading to port after port - damaging our global reputation and our security too.
"This is becoming a circus, with staff being shunted from port to port to try and keep up because they cut so many in the first place without a back-up plan.
"She needs to get a grip, sort out unacceptable delays at our borders and make sure their are enough officers available at all our ports to maintain security too."
