Tim Reardon, head of EU exit for the Dover Harbour Board, told MPs last year: “In our context, virtually everybody crosses the border in a vehicle and in a group.
“There is no such thing as an e-gate for a car, and there is no such thing as an e-gate process for people travelling as a group. They’re all one-at-a-time processes.”
Meanwhile, Twitter users reacted with fury to the plans.
Matthew Pritch said: “Just taking back control of our borders, money and law said the EU.”
Marilyn Parrott posted: “This is scary. Why will a British passport no longer be sufficient to enter EU countries, like in the olden days? Will children and babies have to be fingerprinted also? Where is this heading?”
