Blog: Ryanair staff force dad to leave twins, 6, at passport gate after Brexit mix-up – Express

Believing that his travel document was not valid, Mr Compson reportedly booked a £177 emergency passport appointment and a new flight with EasyJet at a cost of £262.

However, after speaking with immigration officers, he said he realised the airline had made a mistake, and that he should have been allowed to fly to Portugal.

Mr Compson booked another Ryanair flight the following day for £282, which he was able to board with no issue.

He estimated the total cost incurred from last-minute bookings, appointments and car hires was more than £1,200.
