Just as schools here break-up, more news comes of disasters at the UK border. Reports from the UK’s Daily Mail say that there was a single immigration officer working this morning at Terminal 5. This lead to new queues of 3-4 hours witn the e-gates being closed again.
To add to problems, the underground is not running this weekend due to pre-planned engineering works.
The cause, they state, is the new way that the track-and-trace system works when it advises people who come in to contact with COVID positive people to isolate. This can be up to ten days, and apparently the Border Force are not part of the trial that allowed our Prime Minister and Chancellor to briefly state that they did not need to isolate last weekend.
