The strongly-worded statement came after a furious blame-game broke out yesterday over the queueing chaos at the airport.
It followed the posting of pictures on social media showing thousands of British arrivals being forced to cram into small hallways with no social distancing measures in place and queueing for several hours to pass immigration.
One holidaymaker, Sonny Singh, told Sky News he saw a pregnant woman pass out while in the queue on Friday night.
‘There were thousands of families queuing and just two people in booths up front checking documents,’ 그는 주장했다.
‘Children were screaming and crying. The queue moved about five feet in the space of about 45 의사록.
'그때, when the pregnant woman fainted, it finally got through to someone somewhere – the kids were then put on the side to sit while the adults waited in the queue and it began moving faster.’
One photo even appears to show a male traveller lying on the floor in the London airport after apparently passing out while queueing for passport control, amid claims that stressed holidaymakers had no access to ventilation or toilets, and no shuttles were available.
