I have emailed our local MP last night, they have already responded to say they will look into it so fingers crossed it helps!
I applied for sons renewal 23rd May, in processing since 3rd June, the old passport was sent to Peterborough but have been advised Newport are dealing with it, not sure on their processing times but still waiting and getting worried now!!
It’s so frustrating as I, like most, didn’t apply earlier as was sticking by the rules and advice from their website to not apply?!
