Dover port remains closed as trucker chaos builds

Paris and London agreed late on Tuesday (December 22) that drivers carrying a negative test result could board ferries for Calais from Wednesday (December 23) after much of the world shut its borders to Britain to contain the new mutated

days before it leaves the European Union's orbit.
