100% passport checks will mean ferry port gridlock, say coach operators
Ministers hope last-minute decision to phase in exit checks for Eurotunnel and cross-Channel ferry passengers will prevent peak-time queues
Coach passengers leaving Britain could face peak-time queues of up to 1,000 passengers an hour when 100% passport checks are imposed on its ports next week, transport operators have warned.
Home Office ministers have agreed a phased introduction of the exit checks from Wednesday, which David Cameron promised would be in place by the general election.
