A Border Force outage affecting its electronic passport control gates is impacting UK airports prompting chaos for passengers up and down the country. Edinburgh Airport posted the warning this afternoon (April 25) with no hint as to when the issue will be resolved.

Heathrow Airport and Stansted Airport have also confirmed to the Express they are being impacted by the issue. A statement from bosses at Edinburgh Airport said: “Border Force is currently experiencing a nationwide technical outage affecting airports across the UK. This is resulting in longer wait times for arriving passengers.

“Our teams are in the arrivals hall providing support as partners from UKBF work to fix the issue.”

Border Force teams are also stationed at UK ports and the Channel Tunnel terminal, but it is currently unknown if this problem extends beyond airports.

Kim Brooks, who is currently travelling through Gatwick Airport has told the Express issues are also impacting it.
