During todays visit by Theresa May to Calais to sign a joint agreement with the French Interior Minister, aimed at tackling the migrant crisis, Road Haulage Association Chief Executive Richard Burnett asked for assurance that government will work closely with the RHA to continue to reduce the problem.

Commenting, Richard Burnett said: “This is vital, particularly if the location of attacks on our members’ vehicles moves further out from the Port and Tunnel areas as we suspect will be the case. I am pleased that we received that assurance.” 

The RHA welcomes other measures included in today’s signed agreement include:

·The deployment of extra French policing units

·Additional UK resources to secure the Eurotunnel railhead including fencing, CCTV, flood lighting and infrared detection technology, and stronger security within the tunnel itself

·Additional freight search teams, including detection dogs
