The Immigration Minister has conceived that some people have queued for too long at immigration at Heathrow airport, but hit out at "wild" reports of two-hour delays.
Damian Green said that the "vast majority" of passengers were processed quickly and that despite some breaches of acceptable waiting times, the problem had been exaggerated:
- 99% of UK and EU nationals queued for no more than 25 minutes
- 96% of the rest queued for no more than 45 minutes
- The longest recorded wait was 90 minutes
