Moves Underway To Restore Travel Between France And Britain

France will re-open its border after the UK government agreed to provide tests for truck drivers stuck in Dover.

If the test is negative, they will be allowed enter mainland Europe.
However, there are delays in the system with thousands of trucks stranded in south-east England.
It is unclear what happens if a haulier tests positive.

Meanwhile  the government says a 'very limited' repatriation service will continue over the next week for Irish residents stranded in Britain.
It follows the decision to extend the current travel ban until December 31st.

Last night more than 350 Irish residents were able to return from Britain on flights and ferries.
In a statement, the Department said the service is not available for citizens normally resident, studying or working in Britain.
They said it will be available for essential travel only and must be arranged through the Department.
