Ferries in Euro deal
MORE than £100million has been spent on ferries in case of a no-deal Brexit.
The Department for Transport signed contracts with Brittany Ferries, Danish company DFDS and the UK’s Seaborne to ease pressure on Dover.
The additional crossings will see the ports of Poole, Portsmouth, Plymouth, Immingham and Felixstowe being used.
Christophe Mathieu, Brittany Ferries chief executive, said: “Our priority is to prepare for a no-deal Brexit and to create additional capacity.”
The DfT said: “This significant extra capacity is a small but important element of no-deal Brexit planning.”
