Confusion at Heathrow as UK cut off from Europe
With many European countries severing their travel ties with the UK, the decision wreaked havoc for families and businesses just days before leaving the European Union's orbit.
France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Ireland, Belgium, Israel and Canada cut travel connections after Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned on Saturday (December 19) that a highly contagious new virus strain posed a threat to the country.
Johnson will chair an emergency meeting on Monday to discuss international travel, particularly the flow of goods to and from the UK.
France closed its border with the United Kingdom to people and trucks and closed its main commercial artery with mainland Europe.
The travel chaos comes just days before the UK is set to exit EU orbit with or without a trade deal negotiators are still trying to eradicate.
- Someone? Many Thanks.
- I've been here as a visitor for eight to seven years and at this point I am confused. Basically, I arrived here on December 14th. The situation is completely different. It's hard here.
- Obviously not many people travel. It's a little weird. Getting on and off is actually a bit easier, but the travel restrictions are a lot tougher. It's hard to see family. So if you can get through it, it is really limiting a lot of people.
