Pilot scheme aimed at "strengthening our borders" says Theresa May

Home Secretary Theresa May has admitted relaxing controls on some EU passengers but blamed the head of the UK Border Force for going further than authorised.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper said the public needed to know the truth.

Theresa May responded saying borders were not at risk during the limited pilot scheme that was introduced.
