No-deal Brexit ferry contract sparks concerns

Katie Hop        

Concerns have been raised over the readiness of a British firm contracted by the government to run extra ferries in the event of a no-deal Brexit. Seaborne Freight was awarded a £13.8m contract this week to run a freight service between Ramsgate and Ostend. The firm has never run a ferry service and a local councillor said it would be impossible to launch before Brexit. The government said it had awarded the contract in "the full knowledge that Seaborne is a new shipping provider". The Department for Transport said that "the extra capacity and vessels would be provided as part of its first services". Image: Getty image
