Sharon Feinstein Walked Through Heathrow Airport in 10 Minutes With No Checks’
She breezed through the airport in just 10 minutes when officials failed to ask for her virus documents – despite her having them out and ready to show.
She had been to Johannesburg, where a mutant strain is running rife, to visit her mother and says she had received a negative test result before coming home.
But writer and journalist Sharon has hit out after claiming nobody bothered to ask to see her forms after she landed, just 20 hours after she had taken off from South Africa.
The troubling news comes as it emerged travellers are going to be tested a few days after they land in Britain, or face a £500 fine if you don’t have the correct information.
Sharon, from Islington, north London, told the Daily Express: “I was in tears.
“I just couldn’t believe what happened. I could have had Covid, they don’t know where I am staying, they didn’t ask.
“As a country, we’re messing up.”
Sharon flew via Doha in Qatar after British Airways offered her connecting flights on Qatar Airways.
She was then was ushered towards Heathrow Terminal 5’s e-gates after landing yesterday lunchtime.
Sharon claims Border Force officials did not ask to see any of her forms and, after scanning her passport, she left.
An announcement that all arrivals must have a Covid test on the second and eighth day of self-isolation after they get here is also expected soon.
The new rules will not just apply to those heading into Britain from ‘red list’ but that self-isolating at home too.
Asked if it was acceptable for Sharon Feinstein to pass through Heathrow without being checked, George Eustice, the environment secretary, told Today: “We’ll look at this but I think the obligation is on the carriers to ensure that people have had a test and that they’ve tested clear before they board the plane, so that is where that particular restriction comes.
