In the UK, groups representing the country's freight and logistics industries have warned of significant gaps in the British government's border preparations for the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December.

Eight organisations, including the Road Haulage Association (RHA), are seeking an urgent meeting with ministers.

They have written to Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove, who is overseeing the UK's Brexit preparations, to highlight fears the UK-EU supply chain "will be severely disrupted" from January if issues are not resolved.

The group wants a meeting with Mr Gove, Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Transport Secretary Grant Shapps to discuss areas including IT systems and physical border infrastructure.

The letter states: "As key participants in the supply chain who will be required to deliver a functional operating border for GB and EU traders next year, we have visibility of the current state of preparedness which as it stands has significant gaps.
