UK supermarket warns of looming gaps on shelves

The British supermarket group Sainsbury's warned on Monday (December 21) that there will be gaps on the shelves within a few days if transport links with mainland Europe are not quickly restored.
Freight traffic from France has been halted as part of a broader suspension of travel links with the UK in an attempt to contain a new, faster-spreading variety of COVID-19.
The French government has closed its border to arrivals from the UK for 48 hours.
This means that no trucks can leave the English port of Dover, the main gateway to Europe.
Sainsbury's says if that doesn't change there will be "gaps in the coming days on lettuce, some lettuce leaves, cauliflower, broccoli and citrus", all of which are imported from the continent at this time of year.
She urged the UK and French governments to find a friendly solution that would prioritize the immediate transfer of produce and other food in ports.
Sainsbury's, the UK's second largest supermarket group, said it sources everything it can from the UK and is looking for alternative means of transport for products from Europe.
