Joint Statement Made by UK and France on Border Delays

A joint statement has been issued by the UK Border Force and French Police aux Frontières after serious delays at a number of ports, including at Dover.

The statement reads:

“France and the UK have been working closely together over recent days to prepare for the management of our shared border through the current period of increased passenger traffic.

Both Police Aux Frontières and UK Border Force, in partnership with the port operators, have put plans in place at the juxtaposed controls on both sides of the Channel this weekend to maximise passenger flows.

France and the UK will continue to work together intensively to support fluidity of freight and passengers across the Channel through the summer period and beyond.”
