I will declare them but the chances of that are pretty slim I would imagine.
Quick story and I know this is 28 years ago but even so. I took my 2 children and a step daughter over to France for work, delivering some electronics. These were the days when your children appeared on your passport.
As I approached passport control I realised my step daughter was not on my passport as she was not my natural child, but we were not stopped. Then I realised if we were stopped coming back she would not be allowed back in the country !!
Needless to say she was not stopped on the return leg either.
I realise things are quite a lot tighter now but that experience dented my confidence in customs checks.
Wife: Have you got a fiver ? Me: £4 ? what do you want £3 for ?
Here's £2, bring me the change !
