Passengers have been stuck in nightmare queues yet again at Border Control at Heathrow Airport. The Telegraph is reporting waits of up to two and a half hours.

 

With just four weeks to go til the Olympics, it begs the question: will the capital's airports be able to cope with the influx of athletes and visitors?

While no laughing matter, the problems so provide fodder for those clever wags on Twitter:
