London Lite Monday, 5 October 2009 21 fast-track system for those without biometric pass 50 to skip the passport queue Nursery worker convicted ofabuse PASSENGERS returning from overseas to Heathrow will be able to pay to jump the immigration queue under a new fast-track system. A trial will be introduced next year at the airports Terminal 4 and will allow travellers without biometric passports to pay to use automated gates. An annual charge, reportedly up to 50, would be imposed, though the Home Office said today the fee had yet to be decided. BAA, Heathrows owner and Britains largest airport operator, is preparing the scheme with the UK Border Agency. At present, three UK airports have biometric gates -- Stansted, Bristol and Manchester -- with the facility expected to be rolled out to seven other terminals. Around 90,000 British passengers a year already avoid immigration queues at Heathrow by undergoing an IRIS test which matches their eyes against information on a database, while presenting their biomet- ric passport. The new type of document, held by some 19.7 million UK travellers, contains a computer chip storing details about the holders face. The proposal would allow the 28 million Britons with old-style passports to register to use automated gates at Terminal 4. They would pay to enrol at Heathrow, with data about their facial features being stored on computer and matched to their passport number. UK and EU passengers with biometric passports would not pay. A PAEDOPHILE who worked at a nursery and a childrens play centre in Cambridge has been convicted of abusing three young children, police said today. Aaron Collis, 24, whose victims were aged between two and seven, was found out when a neighbour borrowed his camera and discovered images of child abuse. News of his conviction came as investigations continue into the paedophile ring involving Plymouth nursery worker Vanessa George. Collis admitted sexual assault, inciting children to engage in sexual activity and taking indecent photos of a child. There was no suggestion that his offences were linked to the case of George, who worked at Little Teds Nursery in Plymouth and who last week, with two co-defendants, admitted sex attacks and child porn charges. by mark blunden broadband 8 out of 10 Plusnet customers would recommend us* To find out why visit www.plus.net/why or call 0800 073 3053 award-winning broadband wireless router included^ 5.99per month + = Cheaper than TalkTalk** * 79% of customers would recommend Plusnet to a friend uSwitch Customer Satisfaction Survey 2009 ^ One-off Postage and Packaging charge of 6.99 for Wireless Router Plusnet Value Broadband 5.99 a month subject to local availability.
