It seems barely a day goes by without further damaging revelations about the UK Border Agency, the organisation which oversees Britain's immigration and customs operation. The recent disclosure that security checks were lowered at UK ports, allegedly without ministerial consent, cost Brodie Clark, former head of the Border Agency, his job. But behind the headlines, what is really going on in immigration halls up and down the land? In this week's The Report, Simon Cox investigates the under fire UK Border Agency. Can the public have confidence that it is now being run and managed properly? Are British ports now safe and secure?
