It was not due to expire for six years but came back invalidated.

Nail technician Bethany said

She said: “When I saw the envelope sticking out the letter box I thought: ‘Great. My passport is back’.

“When I opened it and found the corner cut off I nearly cried.

“I was frightened we would have to cancel the holiday and was in a real panic.

She received the passport just days before the family was due to leave on a £4,000 holiday to Marbella.

She and fiancé Eadon Asquith, 25, had to travel 100 miles from their home in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, to Durham and pay £177 to sort it out.

When they got there they found yet another mix-up, this time with her appointment.

She said: “It was supposed to be at 2pm but they could not find my name on the list so we had to hang around until they closed and did not get seen until 6.30pm.

“I am still hopping mad.

“Getting my passport invalidated was the last thing I needed nine days before the holiday we were all looking forward to.”

The Passport Office apologised and said it would refund the fee.
