ITV News published this video item, entitled “Covid: No sign yet of solution to lorry lockdown at UK border | ITV News” – below is their description.
As the prime minister said, he and the French President, Emmanuel Macron, are keen to get the lorries rolling again, in the next few hours, if possible, although there is no sign of that yet.
Mr Johnson says 80% of the freight arrives in containers loaded onto ships, so without drivers. It is fresh food that arrives in lorries.
The Supermarkets say they are all right for now and Christmas lunch is not at risk.
But Sainbury’s and Tesco said lettuces, cauliflowers, broccoli and citrus fruit may run short in time.ITV News YouTube Channel
