There was a queue stretching right back down the corridor for immigration – no controls in place so, consequently, people pushed and shoved their way into line at the point where 2 passenger streams converge.
As usual, there was no queue for ‘foreign’ passports so they were straight through.

So if a UK passport holder tried to clear through an empty “foreign” passport channel, will they be turned away? Is there any legal or practical reason why a common sense approach when there is a long line and empty line at passport control or are the clearing of passengers through certain channels/line an EU regulation…

I don’t know the answer to that.
All I can say is that there was just 1 person at the place where the zig-zag lines begin, channelling people left or right depending on EU or not.
Doubtless there will be some restriction or other….
