Porch problem

Can anyone help
Recently an elderly relative had her porch double glazed by a housing association - new outer and inner doors plus windows
Now she finds it very hard to open and close the inner door when the outer door is closed,
Its not a problem if the outer porch door is left ajar, so its obviously an air pressure problem
Is there a venting system out there to solve this particular problem,
The company who fitted them don't seem to have a solution.

All suggestions appreciated

Post a picture of the doors---something as simple as drilling a hole in the door might be all that is needed-----

I there is a door sweep at the bottom you may be able to raise it to leave a slight air gap.

Can you post up a picture? There is usually a good bit of adjustment in most newer doors.
