|Doncaster Airport Customs Control|
l prepared another Statement of Truth that gave all the details of my trip and previous ones ... which now included the stop and search at Hull.. lt included a statement that l could not consent to being interviewed by either of the UKBA officers who were involved in my ordeal of the 10th Dec 2010 at Doncaster Airport. Neither would l consent to any of their colleagues interviewing me as l deemed such an action a conflict of interest and unethical due to these officers still being under investigation.l would consent to being interviewed by South Yorks Police though if UKBA wanted to proceed with such an action.
We arrived back at Doncaster Airport at approx 20.30. lt was the last flight in that day. lt's only a small airport and my flight was only the 5th that day. The next would be just after midnight at 00.35. Disembarking the aircraft, we made our way to Passport Control ... the very same one that l never got by on 10th Dec.
Well what a surprise, all 3 Passport Control desks were manned ... it's usually just one. Sat there at 2 of the desks were the very 2 UKBA officers that l'd put a complaint in about. Strangely they had on hi-viz jackets that hid their ID numbers ... the 3rd UKBA officer was in normal uniform.Behind the Passport Control was a policeman and way to the side at another desk was 2 'suits' who l surmised to be UKBA. There was no doubt we were recognised ... how could they forget? We passed through Passport Control and made our way to baggage reclaim.
Whilst waiting for our luggage l noticed the 3 UKBA uniformed officers and 2 suits come from Passport Control after finishing processing the last of the passengers. They all disappeared through a staff only door, the policeman stayed in the baggage reclaim area. Eventually our luggage turned up, we were amongst the last to get our luggage. We then proceeded to the exit and Customs control.
There was no-one there! ... it was not manned!
We waited at the exit until airport security closed the exit with the powered shutter after the last of the passengers had left.
Make of it what you will. Us? ... time to book another trip somewhere ... from Doncaster Airport! :)
Oh, and today was the day l was supposed to get a reply from the vice director of UKBA Complaints, Dover ... l got nothing!
