Sadiq Khan has warned that fingerprint checks at St Pancras Station could cause chaos and massive rail queues. The Mayor of London has urged the government to prevent disruptions for Eurostar passengers when the EU launches biometric border checks later this year. High Speed 1, which operates the line between London and the Channel Tunnel, has said that preparations for the new EU biometric Entry and Exit System (EES) are 'severely inadequate'. The fingerprint checks, expected to be implemented in October, could lead to the capping of passenger numbers and significant delays at St Pancras Station.
