Pressure on Theresa May as border force head steps down

The head of the UK Border Force has resigned, putting the Home Secretary, Theresa May, under increased pressure to explain her handling of the decision to relax some border checks this summer.

Brodie Clark has contradicted Mrs May's version of events, and accused her making his position untenable.

Labour will demand more answers about what happened during a commons debate later on Wednesday.

Robin Brant reports.
