Kent to Calais: Boris suggests Channel bridge


The Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson wants to build bridge across the English Channel to connect Kent and France.

Discussions between Boris and the French President suggest 'Boris Bridge' could stretch from the area around Dover to Calais.

The Foreign Secretary said "good connections" were important between the two countries, and suggested the Channel Tunnel might simply be "a first step."

Boris Johnson tweeted the idea following yesterday's visit from French president Emanuel Macron, however the former UKIP leader Nigel Farage is not impressed.
