This is big business – everyone is selling them – supermarkets, newsagents, petrol stations. I usually buy a sandwich for my lunch as there is a large supermarket near my office.

The cost of a 10 year adult passport will rise from £72.00 to £77.50 – a rise of £5.50 or 7.64% of the current price. This increase in price is due to come into effect on 3rd September.
