Labour pledges 1,000 extra border staff

Labour will recruit an extra 1,000 UK border guards if it wins the general election, shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper has said.

The party would fund the staff with a charge for visitors from the United States and 55 other countries with a visa waiver agreement with the UK.

Ms Cooper says the new staff would "bolster" border security.
