Customs checks will cause huge tailbacks, warns Calais port boss
Theresa May and Michel Barnier urged to act now to stop massive congestion after Brexit
The boss of Calais Port has warned of tailbacks up to 30 miles in all directions and potential food shortages in Britain if a Brexit deal involves mandatory customs and sanitary checks at the French ferry terminal.
Jean-Marc Puissesseau made an impassioned plea to Theresa May and Michel Barnier to put plans in place immediately to avert congestion in Calais and Dover, where bosses have already warned of permanent 20-mile tailbacks.
