UK and French border agencies vow to ease traffic at the border

Dover, UK: The UK and French border forces have pledged to work together to manage the shared border and allow traffic to flow freely over the summer and beyond.

In a joint statement today, the director general of Border Force, Phil Douglas, and the deputy director general of the French Police Aux Frontières, Brigitte Lafourcade, said:

“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.”
