Foreign nationals are making a full-time living by illegitimately selling same-day visa appointments because of long-standing problems with the UK Border Agency's online booking system. People wanting to take advantage of the premium same-day service to extend or renew their existing visas are resorting to buying appointments from unofficial agents operating from abroad. The costs can escalate to four times the price of an original appointment when individuals book through a Uk-based immigration specialist.

Re-versioned repeat of Sunday's broadcast.
