UK Border Agency 'not good enough' and being scrapped

The UK Border Agency will be abolished with its work returning to the Home Office, Theresa May has announced.

The home secretary told MPs "its performance was not good enough".

The UK Border Agency was formed in 2008 as an arms-length agency of the Home Office but Mrs May said this had led to a "secretive culture".

Matt Prodger reports.
