Reuters exclusively reports Dover warns of Brexit trade disruption as tourists hit Europe

Reuters reported exclusively that trade disruption could return if British holidaymakers head for European summer breaks, the head of the country’s biggest port said, calling on the government to urgently reconsider funding to redevelop Dover to prevent long-term damage. Britain’s passage out of the EU was eased by a lack of tourist traffic to France during the COVID-19 pandemic, enabling port staff to process the extra paperwork now required for trucks to access Europe and keep goods moving. But the government recently dropped a travel quarantine requirement for fully vaccinated Britons, potentially increasing the number of vehicles that could descend on the south-west port over the summer holiday months.
