Why were the British stranded in Duenkirchen?
Johnson and Macron agree on a freight schedule starting Wednesday
London - Britain and France will agree on a freight resumption plan after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron agree on measures to reopen the French border, reported the BBC. The measures will apply from Wednesday, said the BBC, citing French European Minister Clément Beaune.
Information on Tuesday
British Home Secretary Priti Patel told Sky television that she would update the negotiations with France later on Tuesday. "We're working to find a solution," said Patel. "It is in our two countries' interests to secure the flow of traffic." You have already spoken to colleagues in France for the past 24 hours and will see what happens on Tuesday.
At the beginning of the week, trade between Britain and the continent largely came to a standstill. Like other EU members, France completely sealed off its border with the island and the most important English Channel port, Dover, had to close. By Monday afternoon, truck jams of up to 50 kilometers in length had formed on the access roads.
Traffic stopped completely
Because of a novel mutation of Sars-CoV-2 that occurred primarily in the UK, neighboring governments blocked their borders to travelers from the UK. More distant nations such as India, Russia and Canada joined 17 European countries on Monday. While the Netherlands banned all flights, trucks were still allowed to enter. In contrast, France closed the border completely on Monday night. This not only brought train traffic through the Eurotunnel to a standstill, but also ferry traffic between the ports of Calais and Dover. On normal days, 10,000 trucks are transported there and around 30 percent of the island's total foreign trade is handled. (Reuters, red, December 22, 2020)
