Furious Heathrow arrivals are complaining of yet more queues today, less than 24 hours after Home Office chiefs branded the wait-time chaos at the airport as 'unacceptable'.
Passengers arriving at the London airport this morning say they are facing 'horrific' queues to get through to the border area of Terminal 3.
One person posted a picture on Twitter from the arrivals area today showing a line of people packed into a hallway.
The picture shows a sign urging passengers to 'have your passports ready'.

It comes as The Home Office finally admitted yesterday that massive queues at the the airport's Terminal 5, where people including a pregnant woman fainted on Friday night, were 'unacceptable'.

The strongly-worded statement came after a furious blame-game broke out yesterday on Friday night.
It broke out after pictures posted on social media showed thousands of British arrivals 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.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
'There were thousands of families queuing and just two people in booths up front checking documents,' he claimed.
'Children were screaming and crying. The queue moved about five feet in the space of about 45 minutes.
'Then, 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.
