UK: Head of UK Border Agency’s border force has been suspended

UK: The head of the UK Border Force has been suspended amid claims that passport checks for non-EU nationals were quietly dropped this summer.

Brodie Clark is one of three senior officials thought to have been suspended while an investigation into the allegations is conducted.

The Home Office refused to comment on a report that guards at the Border Force - part of the UK Border Agency - had been told not to bother with certain passport checks.

But a spokesman said: “Head of UKBA Border Force Brodie Clark has been suspended.”
