Passengers travelling to the UK may face delays until Friday, due to a UK Border Agency staff strike.

Nearly 2,500 union members began a two-day strike on Wednesday, Oct. 13, in protest to proposed changes to working practices.

While travellers experienced delays Wednesday morning, a spokesperson for Heathrow Airport said the line-ups at passport control were back to normal, although passengers could expect some problems during the peak evening period, between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Port of Dover reported no major delays or disruption.
