Home Secretary Theresa May has announced that the UK Border Agency will be split in two, news media report.
BBC News says the move follows revelations that hundreds of thousands of people were let into the country without appropriate checks.
According to BBC News, under the new arrangements, immigration policy work will be separated from operational duties and the UK Border Force will become a separate law-enforcement body with its own distinctive "ethos".
The Guardian reports that an official inquiry report found that poor communication, poor oversight and confusion among ministers and senior officials lay at the heart of last summer's border checks fiasco.
