The Tory member, who serves on the National Security Council, tested one of the 15 second generation scanners, which use facial recognition technology to provide identity and security checks in seconds.

Mr Brokenshire said “Keeping the UK’s border secure is our priority. At the same time we want to welcome legitimate visitors and trade which contributes to the UK economy.”

There are currently 109 ePassport gates in use at 18 airport terminals across the UK and the roll-out will continue for the next two years.
