Easter gridlock: Prepare for worst, says travel editor

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

The British Air Transport Association has written to Theresa May with 11 airlines' concerns over possible delays at peak travel times such as Easter.

They say there are too few border staff for full security checks.

BBC Breakfast's Tim Muffett reports from Heathrow, where The Independent's travel editor Simon Calder told him holidaymakers should "hope for the best, but prepare for the worst".
