The Managing Director of a Seafood producer in the Scottish Borders says they've been left vulnerable by travel problems around the Channel Tunnel.
James Cook from Eyemouth based DR Collin and Sons says the company has been badly affected as their produce is not getting to customers on time.
Some of his drivers have spent hours waiting in traffic to get to Calais.
We sell high value premium quality, and we are finding it’s missing markets, customers are walking away from orders, cutting orders, leaving us with the product, so we are then having to discount quite heavily just to find a sale, otherwise we would have to pay just to have the product removed and destroyed so we are in very exposed and tenuous position here and we feel very vulnerable to all the problems that are being inflicted upon us."

A cream tea is being held in Wigton today, to help bring a Cumbrian man home from India.
John Armstrong was arrested for suspected weapons offences in October 2013, while working as an anti-piracy guard in the Indian Ocean.
The charges against him, and five other men, were dropped, but the Indian police appealed, and the men will now have to stand trial.
Today is John's birthday, and it's hoped the cream tea, which is being put on by his sister, Joanne Thomlinson, will raise money, and awareness.
