MOTORISTS crossing the frontier into Gibraltar are facing increasing delays due to an anti-smuggling crackdown.
The Guardia Civil campaign has targeted the movement of cigarettes, with many more vehicles and pedestrians being processed in recent weeks.
Authorities seized 28 vehicles and charged 83 people with smuggling offences in just one week recently.
Offences included conceament in false compartments of vehicles.
Police have also increased the number of roadside stop and search points in the Campo area, further reducing the flow of traffic.
