Calais Strikes Cause UK Supermarket Shortages

The chaos in Calais have raised concerns with food shortages imported to the UK as the migrant crisis and strikes continue.

British supermarkets fear for their short supply of essential goods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, due to the current chaos in the France port town.

Leading supermarkets are admitting their struggles to get supply during the French turmoil.


The strikes in France took over the town for weeks after ferry employees blocked the Channel Tunnel. Flaming tyres erupted on roads causing endless traffic lines.

Migrants took advantage of the situation, climbing onto lorries and threatening drivers in order to get into the UK.

Traffic and queues are still occurring in Calais and Dover, whilst French workers remain on strike.
