Lorries Operation Brock – Brexit Test Run.  Departure from Manston airport in Kent to Dover

An exercise to test plans for border disruption in the event of a no-deal Brexit described as too little too late by hauliers.

A convoy of 89 lorries took part in two test runs. Both from the disused Manston Airport, near Ramsgate in Kent. The lorries took a 20-mile route on the A256 to the Port of Dover.

The Department for Transport said they went well and traffic ran smoothly.

But the Road Haulage Association said the process should have begun months earlier.

Its chief executive Richard Burnett said the trial cannot possibly duplicate the reality of 4,000 trucks that would be held at Manston Airport in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

Richard Burnett: It’s too little too late, this process should have started nine months ago.

What are your views on this operation?  Do we rally need to prepare for a no-deal Brexit?  Let us know.  We would love to hear from you.  Your views are important.
