  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Brexit: 200 lorries turned back at UK crossings every day due to new paperwork” – below is their description.

    Officials have admitted that up to 200 lorries a day are being turned back at UK crossings into the European Union because they do not have the right paperwork, but they insist the vast majority are getting through.

    However, traffic through the UK’s second-largest port, Holyhead, has slumped since the start of this year – in part as more lorry drivers are choosing to travel directly between Ireland and mainland Europe, bypassing the UK.

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
