Access will be granted within hours — meaning people fleeing the Russian invasion will not have to queue in freezing conditions.

The Home Sec told MPs: “Ukrainians with passports will be able to get permission to come here fully online from wherever they are and will be able to give their biometrics once in Britain.

It came as Western Officials warned that 2.2million refugees had now fled Ukraine – with many suffering from frostbite or trauma as a result of the war.

Visa Application Centres in Europe will help those without passports.

More than 2.3 million refugees have now left Ukraine.

They warned over four million could cross the borders from war torn nations in the days to come.

One official said: “These are unprecedented numbers unlike what we have seen anywhere in the world.

“The sheer scale of this is something we haven’t seen since the end of World War II.” 

Labour’s Yvette Cooper called the Government’s approach “shameful”.
