Immigration spy centre hit by staff delays
The centre will employ 250 "match analysts" who will judge the strength of computer-generated alerts when a traveller is flagged as suspicious against a domestic or international watch list. They will also decide which law enforcement or intelligence agency each alert should be passed on to.
The Home Office didn't say why training will be completed later than expected.
The minimum educational requirement for a match analyst is two GCSEs. Once their training is complete they will earn less than £15,000.
Great. Every time we travel we'll be at the mercy of semi literate jobsworths making 'safe' decisions.
