Border control timings not always good enough, says BAA

Airlines have warned the home secretary that Britain "risks gridlock" at airports over the Easter break, because of staff shortages.

John Holland-Kaye, Commercial Director at BAA, said that it should take up to five minutes to get through security, but that immigration was a different matter.
