The UK’s Border Force is recruiting extra officers in Plymouth as part of its preparations for Brexit.
The government agency enforces the law on immigration and goods entering or leaving the country.
It is part of the Home Office and officers carry out checks of people and goods at ports and airports. The agency also works on counter-terrorism and human trafficking.
Plymouth is one of the locations for the recruitment of 1,000 extra staff to prepare for Brexit.
The city is a route for significant trade and travel between the UK and Europe through Brittany Ferries' operation at Millbay Docks.
News of the extra jobs comes as Plymouth City Council’s Labour leader Tudor Evans raised concerns about an apparent lack of preparations for a no-deal Brexit.
He told councillors ministers were warning local government to prepare for an economic shock if the UK leaves the EU without a deal on 31 October.
He added he feared some businesses could be in trouble if a no-deal Brexit went ahead.
His concerns reflect a government assessment of the effects of a no-deal Brexit leaked to the Sunday Times, which warned of possible shortages of food and medicines.
Cabinet minister Michael Gove responded that the study was a “worst-case scenario”.
