‘Chan­nel chaos’ fear

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

A NO-DEAL Brexit could lead to six months of chaos on key cross-Chan­nel routes, the lat­est Gov­ern­ment as­sess­ment has claimed.

Fer­ries be­tween Dover and Calais and traf­fic us­ing the Chan­nel Tun­nel could be dis­rupted un­til the end of Septem­ber 2019, ac­cord­ing to a let­ter sent by Health Sec­re­tary Matt Han­cock to the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal in­dus­try and NHS.

Min­is­ters are draw­ing up plans to fly in vi­tal drugs and give pri­or­ity to lor­ries car­ry­ing med­i­cal sup­plies.
