    This whole thing is a nightmare, there are going to be loads of people now not getting their holidays and loosing thousands of pounds. It is so frustrating. No rhyme nor reason. My friends daughters went to Durham same time as me, we are going on holiday together with our families. She is still stuck in processing. Mine went to Peterbourgh, I am stuck in processing too! Agh!!!!

    Child online renewal sent to Peterborough 3rd April. Chased on Twitter to no avail. Finally received ( after a little press intervention- thank you Mr Calder) on June 24th. Completely unnecessary delay considering others are receiving their within 2 weeks. No information and no transparency. The system seems to be a shambles – I was asked to pay extra money and after finding someone to take the money ( not easy because those working from home couldn’t do this) I was then phoned the next day and asked to pay again??!! Glad it’s all over……82 days 😕

    Just spoke to a mate who is a lawyer the passport office has applied English law for parental responsibility and they should have applied Scots law so the need for me to provide a letter from the mother and a birth certificate is erroneous and misguided!

    Need to phone them again to point this out.

    Under Scots law a father has parental responsibility if named on the birth certificate which they admit they still have since 2015!
